the multi-hyphenate

Michael Kushner, here! I base my work on the idea that I can do anything whenever I want. It may sound like I put too many eggs in one basket, but I I pick and choose my projects carefully. Iā€™m a multi - hyphenate: a person who has multiple proficiencies, often cross pollinating into each other to help flourish professional capabilities.

When it comes to performance, Michael is a proud member of Actors' Equity Association and some favorite credits include ON THE TOWN at Barrington Stage (Directed by John Rando), MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING at Barrington Stage (Directed by Julie Boyd), SONS OF THE PROPHET at GableStage (Directed by Joe Adler), and TOXIC IF SWALLOWED at Ars Nova (Directed by Charles Quittner). Michael graduated with distinction from Ithaca College with a BFA in Musical Theatre.

As a photographer, Michael's work has been featured in The New York Time, Vogue, The Tony Awards, and in publications in print and online nationally and across the pond. He is the creator of THE DRESSING ROOM PROJECT, a photographic journal of actors prepping for their roles on Broadway - which is featured in the new theatre publication Musical Theater Today. Michael is one of the founding members of Musical Theatre Factory, currently in residency with Playwrights Horizons.
