Originally from the wilds of the Great Pacific Northwest, Megan grew up surrounded by coffee, farmers’ markets, and rock ‘n’ roll. She now resides in Brooklyn where she is surrounded by coffee, farmers’ markets, and rock ‘n’ roll.
As an actor, Megan does primarily new work originating roles in the World Premieres of Amy Staats’ EDDIE AND DAVE, Mara Nelson Greenberg’s DO YOU FEEL ANGER?, Leah Nanako Winkler’s KENTUCKY, and Rob Askins’ HAND TO GOD, to name a few. As a writer, her play THE LAST CLASS: A JAZZERCIZE PLAY has had acclaimed runs to packed houses in New York, DC,and Seattle.
Her work has been described as “Sharp as a knife and as funny as a fart” (TheStranger, Seattle). Agents have described her look as “Anne Hathaway’s NORMAL looking sister, not a model by any means,” who has a “downtown theater look with regional theater hair,” and “a factory worker, not “talkin’ MerylStreep in Silkwood, but the friend next to her in line.” Megan is thrilled to fill this market.
Megan received her BFA in Acting and Original Works from Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle and her MFA in Acting from American Repertory Theatre/Moscow Art Theatre Institute for Advanced Theatre Training at Harvard University (also known as the LONGEST Name for an MFA Program in History). She is a company member of Ensemble Studio Theater, Morgan Gould & Friends, and previously of DODO, The Management, and Studio 42
