Find Out how to be John Michael’s Boyfriend

Meatball Séance

John Michael needs your help with his mom’s meatball recipe to summon her from the dead so she can meet/approve of his new boyfriend. Join JM, as he learns how to have relationships with the living and the dead.

“John Michael left a big ol’ void in Dallas when he headed to the colder climes of Chicago a couple years back. His vibrant one-man shows lit up the local theater scene, injecting his trademark silliness and effervescence into topics that are anything but.” —Dallas Observer
