I’m Profiled in Theater Bay Area Magazine!

TBA_keepaneyeonHey, lookit! I'm profiled in the Sept-Oct 2013 issue of Theater Bay Area Magazine! I couldn't be more pleased with Lily's Janiak's article about me; she manages to make actual coherent sense out of my life and work, which is no small feat.  Someone should give that woman a medal.

(Don't stop.) xoxo -Megan

My Dumplings Interview: “Breathless,” “Shameless,” “Like I’m Screaming One Last Message Out Before Being Hit By A Truck.”

“Disarmingly Cute,” “Blood-Curdlingly Vicious,” and “A Worthy Successor”: Dumplings in the SF Bay Guardian

Wow, the SF Bay Guardian liked the "Three Little Dumplings Go Bananas" so much in their review "This Shit Is Bananas!"   Check out this rad quote:
