Megan Phillips, Ernest Johns

Actor/Playwright Megan Phillips brings her story of broken dreams turned triumph to the Manhattan Repertory Theatre Summer Festival this year in the astonishing one-woman musical drama Breaking Velocity.


In 2006 Phillips was about to complete her Masters Degree in Musical Theatre at the UK’s prestigious Mountview Academy for the Performing Arts, but her dream of performing on Broadway was interrupted when she was struck by a car. She spent the next five years recovering from several surgeries on her shattered ankle.


Breaking Velocity follows Phillips’ emotional journey as she rediscovers her dreams, her self-worth, and her creative authenticity.
