At eleven years old, Daisy Eagan became (and remains today) the youngest actress ever to win the Tony Award for the Best Performance by A Featured Actress when she dazzled New York audiences as Mary Lennox in The Secret Garden.
Over twenty years later, her career has brought her back to Broadway again and again, and has also sent her across the country in a national tour, world premieres at South Coast Rep and La Jolla Playhouse, numerous television appearances, starring roles in film, leads on Los Angeles' most prestigious stages, inspired three self-penned one-woman shows, and much, much more.
Daisy's sardonic wit, dry humor, and impeccable comic timing have earned her a devoted fanbase, and have also worked in tandem with her frankness and vulnerability to inspire three hilarious and heartfelt one-woman shows: Daisy Eagan: Fuck You. I Love You., Still Daisy After All these Years, and One For My Baby. Each show explores deeply funny and sometimes tragic themes, as Daisy intertwines a wide spectrum of songs into her storytelling. With accounts ranging from "life after Broadway" to the devastating loss of her mother, on to the struggles and compromises she has made as an artist, her life stories illustrate that, yes, truth really IS stranger than fiction.
A published, award-winning writer with a loyal and growing audience, Daisy hasn't left her creative talents on the stage. A fierce fighter and activist for women's and LGBTQ rights, she is a rousing voice in political arenas, and continues to fight for change throughout her literary career.
Daisy lives in New York and she teaches and speaks across the country. In May of 2013, she welcomed her first child, Monty Harrison Eagan-Bloom. He has red, red hair and finds magic in every little thing.
