Get to know Michael!

TCTP: What is your weapon of choice in the apocalypse?

MJ: Throwing Knives. Can use them for both medium and short range combat. Also they look cool.

TCTP: What’s your signature dish that you bring to barbecues?

MJ: Cheesy potato casserole

TCTP: Which character in BARBECUE APOCALYPSE are you actually most like?

MJ: Mike. I was the guy that everyone picked on and my partner would have to stand up for me with the “Michael did [insert uncool thing here] and I am so proud of him.”

TCTP: What’s your favorite end of the world movie and/or book?

MJ: This is the End

TCTP: What kind of apocalypse (zombie, nuclear, environmental, etc.) would you survive the longest in?

MJ: Environmental. Zombie is the worst because you now have zombies and bandits to look out for.

Check out Michael's work in BARBECUE APOCALYPSE running 18 - July 21 at Prop Thtr.
