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, “John Michael 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 Podtalk 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.

  • It's NOT ALL About You John Michael

    CHICAGO – John Michael epitomizes the art of the monologue. The Chicago transplant, by way of Dallas, is moving on (he says temporarily) from the city that inspired his last show, “Meatball Seance,” after notorious and successful runs of his other one-man shows, “John Michael and the Order of the Penix” and “Dementia Me.” His farewell performance is his latest, another laugh riot, “It’s NOT ALL About You John Michael,” and will take place at Mary’s Attic in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood on March 1st, 2019.

  • Soccer Player in the Closet, The 2

    CHICAGO – Connecting to the theater collective Nothing Without a Company means a couple of things. One, you may visit parts of Chicago you’ve never seen before – in this case a plant store in an industrial area south of Humboldt Park – and two, you will see some daring and outside-the-box stagings. “The Soccer Player in the Closet” is their latest production – a World Premiere – and it provides what the title implies and beyond. The play runs through March 17th, 2019. Click here for more details, including ticket information.
