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” takes place every Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. through April 6, 2017 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.

  • Kid Thing, The

    CHICAGO – Like the awesome Engine Who Could, the mighty Nothing Without a Company stage crafters have constructed another triumph at their new home in Berger Mansion on Chicago’s north side. “The Kid Thing” – written by Sarah Gubbins – is a terse, convincing and emotional play about fear, identity and breeding, and it is performed by its cast of five with utter authenticity. The show has a Thursday-Sunday run at the Berger North Mansion through April 15th, 2017. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Wiz, The

    CHICAGO – When stage theater can cause outbreaks of elation, celebration and joy, then it must be due to Kokandy Productions’ revival of “The Wiz.” The urban reinterpretation of “The Wizard of Oz” story – told through tuneful euphoria and jubilant dance – is ecstatically produced, in every morsel of its stagecraft.
