Megan Hilty

Broadway performer and television actress Megan Hilty has had a fast ride to the top. After graduating from Carnegie Mellon with a degree in theater she immediately landed the role of Glinda in Wicked on Broadway, later performing the role on tour and in the Los Angeles production. Her next role was Doralee in 9 to 5: The Musical, for which she was nominated for Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, Drama League, and Ovation Awards for Best Actress in a Musical. Busy making guest appearances on TV shows, in 2011 Hilty joined the cast of NBC’s Smash as Ivy Lynn, an actress desperate to land the lead in a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe. The New Yorker wrote of her performance, “Hilty has built a character who feels like a real Broadway diva: sexy, funny, ambitious, insecure, at once selfish and giving.” During the hiatus between the first and second seasons of Smash, Hilty starred in the New York City Center Encores production of Gentleman Prefer Blondes, earning her stellar notices. Ben Brantley in The New York Times called the opening performance “…one of those single, golden nights, so cherished by theatergoers, that thrust its leading lady into the firmament of musical stardom.” Megan regularly performs with orchestras and symphonies across the country and her solo show -- including her sold out Carnegie Hall debut -- has received critical acclaim. Her solo album, It Happens All the Time, was released last year.

Tickets start at $55
