Karen Janes Woditsch

Karen was last seen on “the Broadway” waving her wand as Professor McGonagall in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and will return as soon as the world rights itself. In Chicago she has worked at many wonderful theatres including Steppenwolf, Goodman, Court, Chicago Shakespeare, Northlight, and in over 20 productions at Writers’ Theatre. She also performed the role of Julia Child in the world premier of To Master the Art, written by William Brown and Doug Frew and produced at Timeline Theatre and later at The Broadway Playhouse, earning her a Joseph Jefferson nomination for Best Performance by an Actress, and improving her culinary skills, much to her husband’s and son’s delight. 

She has co-starred on a number of films (Girl on the Third Floor, American Fable) and television shows (Patriot, Chicago PD, Proven Innocent). And is a proud member of AEA, and SAG/AFTRA. She is an After Dark Award winner. 

If she could get acting jobs in which she could also ride horses in Scotland, her performing aspirations might be fulfilled.
