PODCAST INTRO: John Michael is a 27-year-old, Texas-born performer whose specialty is the one-man show. His spin is audience participation, as he tells his life stories in his one-of-a-kind whirling dervish style. He hit Chicago with a show he developed in his native Dallas, “Harry Potter and the Order of the Penix,” about Michael negotiating his dating life. His follow-up, which was developed in Chicago, was “Dementia Me” – a chronicle of his two-year period keeping up with dementia patients as he worked at a Dallas care facility. His latest show is “Meatball Seance.” The podcast has a few bad words in it, as a warning, all spoken by John Michael. Listen now to our podcast interview below!


John Michael’s “Meatball Seance” will run on two consecutive Mondays, July 31st and August 7th, 2017, at 7:30 pm at the Mary’s Attic cabaret at 5400 N. Clark St. in Chicago. Click here for more details, including ticket information. Featuring monologist John Michael. Directed by Janet Howe.

Because of its reputation as a tourist mecca, the fact that native peoples live and work there like any other place is hard to imagine. Also unimaginable is the drug use of island residents, but playwright and Hawaiian native Hannah li-Epstein wrote about it in her stage play “Not One Batu,” now in its Premiere Chicago run at the Berger Park Coach House through July 28th, 2018.
