Madeleine Louise Farley
Though I was raised primarily in the much-maligned state of New Jersey, I am an actress and comedian based in the Twin Cities. I feel strongly about most things, but especially about how art must be utilized to put good into the universe. I do my best to use theatre to display the dignity of every person and advocate for the possibility of a better world. There's no such thing as other people's children.

Nice things people have said about my work:
Death of a Pen Name
Strong story told respectfully and boldly. Madeleine Farley commands that stage and leads this cast through a very hard story to tell. Empathetic, sad, funny. Brava.

A strong cast led by Madeleine Farley brings this story to life... A powerful loss animates the play, but the poetry of that lost friend is woven throughout the show, honoring his memory and reanimating his voice. It's hard to imagine that any member of the audience won't find something familiar and painful here.

A very personal account of one friendship rocked by addiction and betrayal. The show is touching and emotional but has light and funny moments throughout. Actors were incredible and the poetry highlighted was interesting and impressively delivered.(5 stars, minnesotafringe.org)
