Growing up on Long Island, Meg put on shows for her beanie babies but sought a wider audience. Before college, she deepened a passion for cultivating joy and inciting empathy through performance as a company member for a regional theatre. Through the year, she acted in nearly 300 performances of mainstage and touring productions such as Jeffrey Sanzel’s From the Fires: Voices of the Holocaust. Touring across country with the company in educational productions, Meg witnessed the artistic power to humanize, making unimaginable human experiences more palatable for the masses. She hopes to find work that gives audiences what they may not even know they needed, from comedies that provide light in the darkness to historical commentaries that tug at heartstrings. Other regional credits include: The Fantasticks (Luisa), A Christmas Carol (Belle), Godspell (Jesus), 1968: Rock the World (world premiere; Margie), and Life, the Theatre, and Other Unlikelihoods (Rachel). She takes pride in her work in several One-Act Play Festivals (world premieres including Andrea Clardy’s After Class). In 2019, she performed at 54 Below in Billy Recce’s Snowflake Jamboree, The Green Room 42 in Sekhmet Sisterhood’s Night of Broadway, and voiced the role of Andrea in the Amazon Prime film Kill Chain (dir. Ken Sanzel). While studying at Oxford University, Meg gained a deeper appreciation for classical works as Titania in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. She has deeply enjoyed taking on some of her dream roles at Fordham such as Yelena in Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya or Alicia in Bess Wohl’s Small Mouth Sounds. She looks forward to continuing in the film world as well – she deeply enjoyed acting in short films and commercials throughout college. Meg loves jamming out on guitar or piano, geeking out over astrophysics, singing opera, and admittedly consuming questionable amounts of peanut butter.
“She enchants the stage with her talent. Her performance alone is worth the price of the ticket. You must watch her live in person. Once you see her on stage, you will forever remember her.” -Patch.com
“Meg Bush as Luisa/The Girl with her operettic soprano in addition to her ability to play both the flute and guitar is unique. Her Luisa personifies innocence. She is the dreamer…we can’t help but empathize.” -TBR News Media
