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.* In December, she finished her third season as Mrs. Claus in the naughty, nice holiday hit Barney the Elf.

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.
