In addition to the many productions she has directed at Fordham (favorites include The Good Person of Szechwan, Pericles, Better Living), Margid has directed a wide variety of classical, musical, and original work for the Yale Repertory Theatre, Lincoln Center Directors’ Lab, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Hangar Theatre, Soho Rep, McCarter Theatre, NYU’s Musical Theatre Program, and New Dramatists, among other venues.

She is the librettist of a music-theatre adaptation of Ray Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles, which received a workshop at the Orlando Shakespeare Festival and a production by the Fordham Alumni Company with generous support from the Henson Foundation.

A Visit From The Footbinder, a music- theatre work Margid conceived and directed, was developed by Goodspeed Opera, produced by Lincoln Center at the Arclight Theatre, and won the Jerry Bock New Musical Award.

Margid received an MFA in directing from the Yale School of Drama, where she was awarded the John Badham Directing Fellowship.

She is a two-time recipient of the New York State Council on the Arts’ Artistic Associate Grant.
