Hey there! I am Morgan: a coffee addicted, pink loving, sometimes blonde, ex-Jersey girl, now living on the other side of the bridge in good 'ole Manhattan!
I spent four insanely fun years earning my BFA in Musical Theatre from Penn State University. While at school I loved exploring new works. I finished off my college experience working on the world premiere of Joe Iconis's Love In Hate Nation playing YaYa, the painfully unhip and sweet science-lover. I also participated in the second production of Joe Iconis's Be More Chill, which was an absolute blast! I had the best time working with writers Mike Reid and Sarah Schlesinger to create and perform the role of Casey in the developmental process of the new musical, The Last Day.
Most recently, I returned to Penn State to make my directing debut, directing Fun Home. Getting back into a rehearsal room with amazing artists plus being around for the start of the 2021 Penn State football season, couldn't have asked for a better fall!
When not acting/directing, traveling is the thing hot on my heart. I genuinely hope to grow old in Italy one day, as long as Florence will have me and my poor Italian speaking skills.
I am now back in NYC performing, working, and tap-dancing through life.
