Megan Loughran performed in the ensemble of SWEENEY TODD with the New York Philharmonic, starring Emma Thompson and Bryn Terfel. Also a cabaret artist, she was a 2015 Fellow in the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's Cabaret Conference, under the artistic direction of John McDaniel.
Prior to that, she completed a year in Off-Broadway’s FANCY NANCY The Musical.
As an improviser, Megan performed with the Chicago City Limits National Touring Company, and is the winner of the Champions' Edition of NYC’s Cabaret Showdown (a live gameshow-style competition that is sort of like American Idol meets Whose Line Is It Anyway). As such, she is often seen sporting a crown.
Megan graduated from Yale University and studied improv with The Upright Citizens Brigade and The Magnet. When alone in an elevator, she is likely singing in it.
She currently writes a humor column called
"Pratfalls & Other Serious Business with Megan Loughran" which runs on StageAgent.com. She was also a guest writer on Ryan Scott Oliver's popular blog, Crazytown, throughout the summer of 2015. Her most popular piece, which resulted from interviews with Susan Stroman, Kristin Chenoweth, Victoria Clark, Kate Baldwin, and Rebecca Luker, can be found here. Her least popular piece can be found in a file labeled "These Are Not Keepers."
