Michael will join the cast of Disney's Beauty and the Beast as Monsieur D'Arque in Olney Theatre Center's upcoming production, November 6, 2020 - January 3, 2021. Directed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge. Music Direction by Walter 'Bobby' McCoy. Choreography by Josh Walden.
Michael attributes his lasting sense of play to a blissfully bucolic upbringing in rural Maine. Whether it’s been training in mime, movement and theatre at Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris, France or wreaking havok in Boston with the The Gold Dust Orphans theatrical company, or working under Ariane Mnouchkine, legendary director of Théâtre du Soleil, Michael is continually grateful for every opportunity that allows him to explore and improve his craftsmanship.
Currently based in Washington D.C., Michael received a bachelor's from Bowdoin College and an MFA from the Shakespeare Theatre's Academy for Classical Acting at The George Washington University.
