Megan grew up in the Seattle area, and after considering pursuing a career in opera decided to
focus on musical theatre. At Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh PA,
she performed in a variety of college and regional productions,
including Carnegie Mellon School of Drama's production of
Kiss of the Spider Woman (as Molina's mother) and the City Theatre production of
She won the National Society of Arts and Letters competition for musical theatre in 2004,
performing "I Can Cook Too" from On the Town and "Simple" from Nine.
She graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor's degree in Theatre.
About two months before her graduation from CMU, Megan performed in an agent showcase.
She was signed by an agent who sent her to audition for the role of Audrey in the touring company of
Little Shop of Horrors.
She landed the part, but soon learned that the production had decided to move in another direction.
The agents asked her to travel to New York again,
this time to audition for the role of Glinda, the role made famous by Kristin Chenoweth in Wicked.
Her audition lasted eight minutes.
She was on an overnight bus trip back to Pittsburgh when she got the news;
she had been hired as the Broadway company's Glinda standby.
After a year as standby (during which she made her Broadway debut opposite Tony winner Idina Menzel),
Megan took over as principal Glinda in the production in May 2005. She
worked with a cast that included Shoshana Bean as Elphaba, Rue McClanahan as Madam Morrible,
and Ben Vereen as the Wizard.
Eden Espinosa took over the role of Elphaba for the last four months of Megan's run.
Megan went on to appear in a variety of regional theatre productions, the national touring cast of
Wicked and in Wicked LA. In the summer of 2009, she appeared in a starring role in
9 to 5: the Musical on Broadway.
