Starting 2018 off right, Paul Michael is stoked to be working with Chicago Children's Theatre under the direction of Henry Wishcamper and Jo Cattell in a new devised production, An Epic Tale of Scale. It's being billed as "The Magic School Bus meets Sleep No More", so.
Two of Paul Michael's plays are being produced this spring! The first, What's the Name of That Psychologist Who Believed Free Will Was an Illusion?, will be featured at Arc Theatre's 2018 Arcitext Festival on March 12 and 13. The second, Same Sects!, will receive a staged reading as part of Other Theatre's Other Ways to Resist on April 4 at the Greenhouse Theatre before transferring to North Central College for a fully-staged production in the fall.
Paul Michael begins rehearsal for Greenhouse Theatre's production of Birds of a Feather--a Chicago premiere!--in April. He will be playing a gay penguin, a misogynist hawk, and a teenage girl, among other things. Come along for the flight! (Just kidding, penguins can't fly and are bound to the earth.)
