On the Way to the Waterfall
In the words of John Lennon: "Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans. So when the path you're traveling is obliterated by some unforeseen disaster, is it tragedy? Or is the repeated reinventing of oneself what life is all about? Follow Meghan as she winds her way from the life she knew she'd live to the life she's come to know...on the way to the waterfall.
"Meghan Cary has written and performed an incredible piece of theatre; one that explores loss with honesty, humor, and grit. This is 80 minutes of live theatre that will touch your heart and remind you of what it means to be human." - Carrie
"I was blown away. This is one of the most moving and entertaining shows I can recall at the Fringe over the past 4 years." - Thomas Christopher
Meghan Cary didn't mean to be a musician. When her fiancé unexpectedly died, she picked up his guitar, figured out how to play it, and wrote her debut, earning her Billboard Magazine's Critic's Choice for Best Newcomer. "I wrote my grief into song, and sang my way out of the abyss. I keep making music to help others connect with their own stories and find their joy."
Known for her unabashed willingness to connect with her audience, Cary brings listeners to their feet and at times to tears with high-energy tunes, masterful storytelling, and deeply personal lyrics that resonate universally. Her message of unity and the power of raising our voices together infuses every show, and her song, Sing Louder, has become an anthem for the music-loving community.
After pushing pause on performing to raise two children, Cary launched back onto the music scene at Philly Folk Fest and is a frequent performer there and at Falcon Ridge, Spring Gulch, Huntington and DelMarVa Folk Festivals. Cary's smoky voice, emotional singing, and vulnerable writing garner favorable comparisons to Melissa Etheridge, Shawn Colvin, and even Bruce Springsteen.
Raised in Hershey, PA, Cary studied math and chemistry at Duke University, with plans of becoming a doctor. She made an about-face at school, ultimately earning her B.A. in drama before going on to obtain her M.F.A. in acting at FSU's Asolo Conservatory for Acting. She is a founding member of the NYC-based, Actor's Shakespeare Company, and has performed in more than 100 plays throughout the United States and Europe. Cary has worked in film, television and radio and supported her creative habit as a commercial voice over artist. Cary has written and preforms her one-woman show, "On the Way to the Waterfall", and is currently collaborating on a Broadway-bound musical. Cary released her first book, "Sing Louder: The Stories Behind the Songs", on International Women's Day 2019, and is currently working on another.
Billboard Magazine advises: "Seek this one out."
