I'm thrilled to be represented by Diana Prano with Multimedia Talent Management. Here's to a fabulous future of hard work and celebrations together! :)

Michael will be playing Man 2 in the upcoming presentation of Hart Island, written by Danny Larsen and Michelle Elliott, with Musical Theatre Factory. 
The presentation of Hart Island will be on Monday, April 18th at 8pm at Joria Productions.

Hart Island is a small island in the East River that has served as NYC’s public burial grounds for 150+ years. It is the final resting place for 1 million dead, including thousands of still born infants. The island is a mass grave that families cannot visit, in part because burials are still carried out by inmates of Riker’s Island. 
"Hart Island” explores the lives of two people society has cast away.

Michael also serves as Coordinator or Volunteers with Musical Theatre Factory which is a volunteer-based nonprofit dedicated to helping musical theatre artists develop and present new work in a collaborative atmosphere free from the pressures of critical or commercial success. 

Michael will be in the ensemble for a reading of the upcoming musical WELCOME TO SHOOFLY, a hilarious new musical comedy. Book & Lyrics by Jonathan Lee & Justin Anthony Long, Music byJoanna Burns, Jonathan Lee & Justin Anthony Long, Additional Music by
