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.

The short film – written by Sam Forman – will be part of “Female Filmmakers Night” at the Midwest Indie, and is part of Raymund’s involvement with Hidden Tears Project, an organization dedicated to raising consciousness by creating media on gender inequality, sexual abuse and human trafficking.

  • They're Playing Our Song

    CHICAGO – During the late disco era of the 1970s, an unusual musical opened on Broadway. Essentially a two person stage play, “They’re Playing Our Song” involved a songwriter and a lyricist who develop a stronger connection than just writing partners. The always passionate Brown Paper Box Co. of Chicago has unearthed this chestnut with a bright and fun revival at the Rivendell Theatre through August 20th, 2017.
