Megan Hilty


Megan Hilty joined the Broadway company of Wicked as the Glinda standby, and made her Broadway debut in 2004 opposite Tony-winner Idina Menzel and assumed the role full-time in May 2005. After a year on Broadway, she continued with Wicked on tour and in the 2007-09 Los Angeles production. While in Los Angeles, Hilty made guest appearances on many TV shows, including Bones, The Closer, Desperate Housewives and Ugly Betty, while also providing the singing voice for Snow White in Shrek the Third.

In 2009, Hilty starred on Broadway as Doralee in 9 to 5: The Musical, Dolly Parton’s adaptation of the popular film. She was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Actress in a Musical, a Drama League Award and an Ovation Award for Best Actress in a Musical.

Hilty next joined the cast of NBC’s Smash as Ivy Lynn, an actress who is desperate to land the lead in a musical about the life of Marilyn Monroe. Emily Nussbaum of The New Yorker said of her work: “Hilty has built a character who feels like a real Broadway diva: sexy, funny, ambitious, insecure, at once selfish and giving.” The show aired from 2012-13 and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Outstanding Musical or Comedy Series.

2013 brought the release of Hilty’s first solo album, It Happens All the Time, as well as her Carnegie Hall debut. Later that year, she joined the cast of NBC’s Sean Saves the World, starring Sean Hayes.

In 2015, Hilty returned to the Broadway stage as Brooke Ashton in Noises Off. For her performance, she received a 2016 Tony nomination for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play as well as Drama Desk and Drama League Award nominations. Since Noises Off ended its run in March 2016, Hilty has guest-starred on Project Runway, Difficult People, Brain Dead and The Good Wife and has released two albums: Megan Hilty Live at the Café Carlyle and A Merry Little Christmas. She also co-starred in the feature film Rules Don’t Apply from director Warren Beatty.
