“A Paper Orchestra” is a staged reading from his forthcoming collection of personal essays. His work has been described as clever, vulnerable, and introspective. All of his pieces use humor to explore the experiences that make us human.
This performance features Stories of Identity: What if who we are doesn’t align with who we want to be? How do we reinvent ourselves without discarding our past?
Produced and Directed by Cynthia Jamin
“It’s hard to see the letters I’m typing because my eyes are still misty. Michael was a writer on a show I did and I know he’s funny, that’s his gift and his profession. I did laugh out loud, that I expected. But what I appreciated most was being led into his thoughts, down the path to his deepest confessions and deepest loves. Good storytelling also lead us to ourselves, our memories, our beliefs. Personal and powerful. I loved the journey.”
-Laura San Giacomo
“Michael has accomplished something most writers will never achieve. He has gotten into good trouble.”
“After reading A Paper Orchestra, I felt alive for the first time. OK, maybe not that, but I had some much needed laughs and was touched by so many of Michael’s observations about love and life.”
