Michael is honored and grateful to be making his debut at the Steppenwolf. Michael began his career here in Chicago at the Players Workshop of the Second City. Credits in Chicago include Shatterd Globe, Straw Dog and a company member of Trap Door Theatre. His industry career put him in Men in Black 2, Bruce Almighty, ER, JAG, and Star Trek Enterprise. He has worked with renowned artist Catherine Sullivan that has put him on the walls of the Whitney and Tate Modern museums and stages in Lyon France and Berlin Germany. In 2002 out of frustration Michael began writing Mr. Bush and turned the letters into an ongoing, ever changing performance. M.S. Garvey's Letters to the President has been performed here in Chicago at the Abbie Hoffman fest and at Trap Door Theatre with the help of some dada clowns from WNEP. With Trap Door and director Beata Pilch, "letters" toured Romania twice and was most recently performed at the Unknown Theater in Hollywood and the Electric Lodge in Venice, California with an unbelievable band called the Hootenany All-Stars.
