Chicago Charmer John MIchael Makes his Winnipeg Fringe Debut!
Did you hear John Michael has a new boyfriend? Oh yes! In honor of the grand occasion, you and the new beau and the entire audience are cordially invited to meet John’s mom. But she’s deceased... Sad. So he’s gonna summon her from the dead by cooking her famous meatballs onstage! Yay! Wait, what?
“John Michael is the wide-eyed, enthusiastic, bombastic breath of fresh air that the Fringe needs." The Orlando Sentinel
The show tackles the ofttimes delicate subjects of grief and loss with charm and wit alongside John Michael's undeniably puckish spirit.
“If a cooking segment about his dead mother sounds morbid, John Michael sees it, rather, as intensely human. It's not a dour show, but an affirming, interactive, community-building experience.” The Dallas Voice
“The only way to avoid participating is to cross your arms. (Pro tip: do not cross your arms. You want to be a part of this). Endearingly Unhinged” - St. Louis Limelight
“If the mention of ‘audience participation’ makes you clench up, Meatball Séance is going to change your whole theater-going world… delightful, silly, subversive and powerful.”- The Dallas Observer
Meatball Séance includes optional audience participation with actual cooking on stage. Mixed with garlic, breadcrumbs, milk, and meat -- this is the Fringe at it's finest. Don't miss John Michael's Meatball Séance!
