John Michael is a performance artist based in Chicago, Illinois. He’s toured Meatball Séance around the world. Notable stops include: The Steppenwolf Theater in Chicago, the Orlando Fringe, the Norway Fringe, Gothenburg Fringe, and Edinburgh Fringe.

Meatball Séance includes optional audience participation with actual cooking on stage. Mixed with garlic, breadcrumbs, milk, and meat — this is theater at it’s finest.

There are 5 roles for the audience to play and “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.

Don’t miss John Michael’s Meatball Séance!
