Megan made her TimeLine debut on DANNY CASOLARO DIED FOR YOU. “As a scholar who does archival research on theatre history, I couldn’t be more personally driven by TimeLine’s mission!” Megan first worked with TimeLine’s Associate Artistic Director Nick Bowling on CABARET at Northwestern University. “Nick valued my dramaturgy in a way I had rarely seen from a director. I felt like a crucial collaborator in the work, so when he asked me to work at TimeLine, I jumped at the chance!” Her most recent dramaturgy work at TimeLine includes CHIMERICA and the staged reading of RED FLAMBOYANT.
Other Chicago dramaturgy work includes THE SECRET GARDEN, THREE TALL WOMEN, and THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING (Court); A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM, CABARET, and THE STATE(S) OF AMERICA – THE REGINA TAYLOR PROJECT (Northwestern University); LOVE AND INFORMATION (Remy Bumppo); and THE TAMER TAMED (Two Pence Shakespeare). In addition to dramaturgy, Megan’s design and production work has been produced at University of Chicago, Mary Arrchie, and Profiles theatres.
Megan’s scholarship on the way theatre and performance affect ideas of ethnic, racial, national, and gender identity has been published in Theatre Journal, Modern Theatre, New England Theatre Journal, Theatre History Studies, and the Cosmopolitan Review. Megan is the Chicago Editor for The Theatre Times, and she is an officer with the Dramaturgy and Theatre History focus groups for the Association for Theatre in Higher Education.
Megan grew up in Normal, Ill. and went on to earn a PhD in Theatre and Drama from Northwestern University, a MA degree in Liberal Studies from Reed College, a MA degree in Theatre History from Illinois State University, and a BA degree in Theatre from Illinois State University.
As of August 1, 2016, Megan will be Assistant Professor of English at the United States Naval Academy.
