Maxine Linehan

An Irish native, Maxine Linehan performed her first professional role for The Irish Operatic Repertory Company in Cork when she was 17 and has since performed in many theatrical productions both musical and dramatic. Favorite roles include Nancy in Oliver, Maria in The Sound of Music, and The Lead Nurse in the first national touring company of Lincoln Centre’s Tony Award winning South Pacific. Maxine co-founded the not for profit alloy theater company which produced Andrew Lloyd Webber's Tell Me On A Sunday, and the American premiere of the award winning Irish play The Mushroom Pickers. In 2011, Maxine made her off-Broadway debut in the critically acclaimed solo play Brontë; A portrait of Charlotte about the groundbreaking author of Jane Eyre. As a concert performer Maxine has performed at Town Hall, Lincoln Center, Feinstein’s/54 Below, The Metropolitan Room, and Birdland. In 2009 she created and performed a nightclub act as a tribute to Petula Clark, which later led to her first independent studio album What Would Petula Do?. Her debut single, a reimagined cover of the 60’s hit You Don’t Own Me, features rap artist Phlaymz and has garnered much attention. Maxine’s solo show An American Journey, a story of immigration told through song, sold out at Birdland and Terminus recording studios and led to a live album. Maxine’s show Beautiful Songs (and album of the same name) had a sold out run at The Metropolitan Room and received a rave review from the New York Times. Maxine is a Barrister by training, studied at The Inns of Court School of Law in London, The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and is a member of Actors’ Equity. Maxine lives in New York City with her husband and two children.
