Angela Grovey

Angela Grovey has lit up the stage, been praised for her scene-stealing roles in film and TV, and is now gearing up for her next season as a TV series regular in the Onyx Collective/Hulu series “Reasonable Doubt.” A native of Sugarland, Texas, Grovey knew she wanted to be a performer since she was a child, but was bitten by the “bug” when she played a Lost Boy in a production of Peter Pan with Cathy Rigby. She went on to study musical theatre in Chicago at Roosevelt University’s Theatre Conservatory (CCPA) before being cast in Tumpie’s Dance at the Stages 2002 festival with her idol, Lillias White. She performed in regional theaters all over the United States, and some of her favorite New York credits include Merry Wives at Shakespeare in the Park, Wig Out at the Vineyard, and The Wiz  at City Center with Ashanti.

Grovey made her Broadway debut in the original Broadway cast of Leap of Faith and then was featured in the original Broadway cast of Escape to Margaritaville. She also appeared in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular for two years before doing the national tours of The Play That Goes Wrong and Newsies. Grovey made her way toward “screen” acting when she landed the role of “Earla,” the exuberant choir member in the musical movie Joyful Noise with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton. On TV, Grovey has appeared guest starring on such notable shows as Amazon’s “Modern Love” (season 2), NBC’s “The Blacklist,” HBO’s “High Maintenance,” Showtime’s “Ray Donovan,” Netflix’s “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Iron Fist” as well as recurred on the hit NBC series “30 Rock.”

Angela joined Broadway Inspirational Voices (BIV) in 2009 and the Arts and Education Team in 2016 and in 2022 accepted the role of Executive Director of the organization.
