Michael wood


"A beautiful actor" -Moisés Kaufman

Michael recently relocated to Portland, Maine and is looking forward to connecting with artistic collaborators, new and old alike, in this next chapter!


Michael attributes his lasting sense of play to a blissfully bucolic upbringing in rural Maine.  Michael is a versatile actor, trained in classical  text, movement theatre, mime, stage combat, improvisation, dancing, and singing.  He has performed on stages across the country and studied abroad in Paris France at Ecole Jacques Lecoq and under Ariane Mnouchkine, legendary director of Théâtre du Soleil.

Michael is a company member of The Gold Dust Orphans, a renowned queer theatre troupe based in Provincetown, Mass and in Washington DC with Only Make Believe, a non-profit performance company that brings imagination to hospitals and specialized facilities that support children coping with illness and disability.

Michael has performed for tens of thousands of audience members over his career, including for Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award, and Emmy Award winner, Tony Kushner; Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Sheldon Harnick; Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Cunningham, and iconic filmmaker John Waters.

Currently based in Washington D.C., Michael received his bachelor's from Bowdoin College and his MFA from the Shakespeare Theatre's Academy for Classical Acting at The George Washington University.
