Friends, I'm very happy to announce that Michael has written a new show! (Actually, he has performed it a few times already in the process of developing it.)
The show is called "Platoon Lieder" and it recounts Michael's own story of serving in the army during and after college, in the days before "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." The format of the show is primarily sung, with dramatic monologues throughout, and the music is German lieder (17th - 20th Century art songs) with new English lyrics Michael has written, that tell his story.
Here's a short video with highlights from the show. It's very accessible and also very funny. (To view full size in YouTube, click here.)

This being 2013, you can also like it on Facebook here.
It would be great to see some of you at his June 28th performance!
