Maggie is definitely a dog person, and will probably raise chickens on her own organic farm someday. She’s a recent breast cancer survivor and contrary to what you’re about to read, rarely talks about herself in the third person.
A seasoned veteran of musical, classical, and contemporary theatre, Maggie is best known for her warm, maternal roles (Baruška, Once; and Baker’s Wife, Into the Woods), as well as hertough-as-nails turns as Queen Elizabeth in Richard III and Barbara Fordham in August: Osage County. She has originated roles in several new musicals, including the role of Miss Glendine in the Off-Broadway Grateful Dead musical, Red Roses, Green Gold.
Maggie’s early training in piano led to a lifelong love of music and a leg up in the flourishing actor/musician genre, which has challenged her to try her hand at more than a dozen musical instruments. She’s now fluent in piano, guitar, and accordion, and enjoys playing around on just about any instrument she picks up. [Editor’s note: do not put a fiddle in her hands.]
Also a recording artist, Maggie and her recording partner, compose Graham Sobelman, recently released Jane Kenyon Sessions: Volume One, a dozen original art songs Sobelman wrote specifically for Maggie, featuring the words of American poet Jane Kenyon. She also released her first full-length solo album, Stripped Down, in 2015. All of her music can be found on CD Baby, iTunes, and Spotify.
