«Myself Played by You» By John Michael
A Participatory Exploration in Empathy/Workshop Performance
Bring Your Own Beer and Feelings
«Have you ever wondered what it was like to be someone else? Meet John Michael. This is his 8th autobiographical one-man show. John Michael keeps making the same mistakes over and over. It's why he is casting you as himself onstage so that he can practice empathy and break the cycle that is John Michael.»
Scared of Audience Participation?
Don't be! You will be able to express consent/unwillingness to go onstage. You may not want to stay in your seat as soon as you see how fun John Michael is having onstage.
A Note from John Michael: I believe now is the time for us to get out of our own heads and into mine.
A note on the venue: I have performed each of my original shows at the Margo Jones Theatre and can think of no better place to workshop this show. Dallas will be the first audience to see the piece in its original form.
