Maureen Moore (born August 12, 1951 in Wallingford, Connecticut) is an American actress. Debuting on Broadway in 1974's revival of Gypsy as Dainty June, Moore has had a long career on stage (also appearing in some films and television). Although she has been cast in a number of major Broadway roles, Moore has notably carved out a niche as standby for the biggest stars on Broadway in such demanding starring roles as Edie/Edith in Grey Gardens (for Christine Ebersole), Mama Rose in Gypsy (for Bernadette Peters) and Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard (for Elaine Paige).

On Broadway, Moore has appeared in leading roles (often as standby) in Grey Gardens (2006 07), The Threepenny Opera (2006), Gypsy (2003 04), Cabaret (musical), (1998 2004), Sunset Boulevard (1994 1997), Falsettos (1992 93), Jerome Robbins' Broadway (1989 90), Les Misérables (1987 - 03), Song and Dance (1985 86), Do Black Patent Leather Shoes Really Reflect Up? (1982), The Moony Shapiro Songbook (1981), Amadeus (1980 83), I Love My Wife (1977 79), and Gypsy (1974 75). She has also appeared in a number of national tours and in regional theatre. Moore also voiced as the evil witch in the musical Into The Woods

On film, Moore began with the role of Elizabeth in The Goodbye Girl (1978) and appeared in Pope of Greenwich Village (1984) among others.
