After some humble beginnings at the Starbucks on 47th and Broadway and selling programs outsideof Broadway shows she couldn’t get into, Megan finally got her first break as a Radio City Ensemble Dancer (too short to be a Rockette).

Other favorite roles include Adelaide in Guys and Dolls, Judy in White Christmas, Sally Bowles in Cabaret and Lois/Bianca in Kiss Me Kate (winner of the Connecticut Critics Circle Award 2015 for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical).
Megan can also be seen in the opening of Ted 2, many Tony telecasts, the Oscars with Hugh Jackman, more recently on CBS’s The Good Fight, Elementary, and BrainDead; I Love You…but I Lied, HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, and Comedy Central’s Important Things With Dimitre Martin, as well as various commercials.
If you’re interested in listening to her dulcet tones, Megan can be heard on 8 original cast recordings. If you ask her what her favorite show is she’s done, her answer will be the one that goes on at home everyday with her hilarious son, wonderful husband, and two horrible cats.
