Cady is thrilled to have been chosen as the new Artistic Director for Axial Theatre - a twenty-two year old theater company based out of Westchester, NY.


In 2021, the screenplay Paint Made Flesh written by McClain and Howard Meyer (based on the original play by Howard Meyer) made The Short List at Barnstorm Fest 2021, and was a Semi-Finalist in the Big Apple Film Festival Screenplay Competition 2021 and a quarterfinalist in the BlueCat Screenplay Competition 2021.


As announced on DEADLINE, Cady McClain won her third Daytime Emmy on June 26, 2021 for Best Guest Performer on "Days of Our Lives." This is an historic win: McClain is the first actress to win three Daytime Emmys for three different roles.


McClain's award-winning feature documentary on female directors, Seeing is Believing: Women Direct screened at the 25th season on Houston's QFEST, September 25th - Oct 4th. McClain also spoke on a panel at the festival about the film and being a female-identifying director.

McClain was also proud to be a judge for the IAWTV Awards, an award presenting judge at the SOHO Film Festival 2021 in NYC and to have judged the ArenaCinelounge Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2021.
