About Me

Megan Erin Lai

Megan Erin Lai is a Chicago-based actress, singer, musician, and dancer from the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. She stepped onstage for the first time at three years old in a tiny pair of tap shoes and has been performing ever since - from playing violin in school and community orchestras to singing in choir, vocal jazz ensembles, and a capella groups to acting onstage and onscreen.

Megan earned her BFA in Acting from Illinois Wesleyan University, where she also studied voice and a variety of dance styles. Some of her favorite credits included Hermia in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Alice in Breaking Up, Liat in South Pacific, and a variety of characters in the one-woman show she developed and performed in, titled The Woman I Am and the Woman I’d Like to Be.

She has since acted in a number of independent and student films around Chicago, with her most recent film, Silkscreen Arcadia, preparing for a festival run. Megan also recently performed in the world premiere of Moonshine & Mistletoe at the Garden Theatre and in The Porch on Windy Hill at Northlight Theatre.

As an artist, Megan aims to show that, despite our individuality, we can always find a point of connection through our humanity.
