Maggie Cain has performed in many highly acclaimed productions – Hans Fleischmann’s production of Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie at Mary-Arrchie Theatre, Moment at Steep Theatre, Good Boys and True at Raven Theatre, and Men Should Weep at Griffin Theatre.* Recently, she played Mrs. Claus in the hilarious musical parody of the ELF movie, Barney the Elf and in Troll, Elizabeth Archer’s shocking new play about the dangers of the internet.
She has appeared in commercials for Jumer’s, Maurice’s, and Spirit Mountain and was featured in the films The Edge of the Road and Cicero in Winter. She has also appeared in industrial films for Accenture, Allstate, Aon, McDonald’s, and many others, has voiced projects for Brandtrust, Caterpillar, and National Louis University, and soothed the public’s nerves on The Onion Network.
Maggie began acting at a young age, when her mother thought that youth theatre classes at the Cleveland Play House would help her come out of her shell. Little did Mom know what she’d set in motion. Maggie earned an MFA degree in acting from Ohio University and came to Chicago in the national tour of The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby. She lives here with her wonderful husband and daughter.
*Men Should Weep won the 2014-2015 non-Equity Jeff Award for Best Production of a Play!
VISITING – April 14 – May 7, 2017. Artemisia Theatre at The Edge Theater.
The undisputed audience favorite from Artemisia’s 2015 Fall Festival, VISITING is an unflinching exploration of the impact of bipolar disorder on four generations of women and the life-affirming discoveries a young woman makes about herself and her future. A beautifully personal, relatable and starkly hopeful play, five women tell a deeply significant, contemporary story.
