Peg Murray

Margaret L. "Peg" Murray (born February 14, 1924) is an American actress of stage, musical theatre and television.

The Denver, Colorado-born actress, one of three children and the only daughter of John and Helen Murray,[1] won a Tony Award for her performance as the vile "Fraulein Kost" in the original Broadway production of Cabaret (1966). She understudied the role of "Fraulein Schneider", originated by Lotte Lenya, and eventually took over that role full-time when Lenya left the production.[2]

Murray later worked in daytime television playing the roles of Carrie Johnson Lovett on Love of Life and modeling agent Olga Swenson on All My Children. She also substituted for Constance Ford for several weeks as Ada Hobson on Another World. She starred in the very brief-lived unsuccessful NBC-TV sitcom, Me & Mrs. C.[3]


Never married, she is affiliated with the .Herstory Writers Group She resides primarily in New York City and Southold, Long Island.
