CHRISTOPHER   MICHAEL

Actor | Dancer | Singer

"The performers are what truly sell this show. Standouts include Christopher Michael, a performer/dance captain, who perfectly blends stomach dropping stunts with bubbly, lighthearted energy. This cast consistently delivers joy no matter what character they are portraying that show."
-KEVIN T. MAZUR

"He is a dedicated performer, earnest collaborator, and talented director, actor, vocalist, and dancer. I have relied on him immensely throughout the development of the project, and am very grateful for his positivity and generous spirit. Christopher continually demonstrates initiative, leadership, and the drive that is necessary to build a successful career in theatre. I have been immensely impressed."
-ALISA HAUSER

"Beyond his musical skills, Chris has an open, thoughtful personality. He is well-spoken and intellectual, and he lights up when talking about new ideas and theatrical trends... He is a thinker and a doer, and shares my philosophy that all students should have the opportunity to shine on stage."

-STEVEN CALAKOS

"Chris transforming from a genuinely terrifying portrayal of Chuck, oozing toxic masculinity, into a bubbly KING for his curtain call..."

-LIN HART

"The Princes’ “Agony” song was a highlight, spoofing the common human trait of always wanting what we can’t have. (Christopher Michael...)​."

-GREATER LANSING UBIQUITOUS THEATRE 

"Into the Woods, a new production at MSU, is proof positive that the musical theatre program has come into its own. The able cast (mostly undergraduates) is more than equal to the challenges of Sondheim's score. And the two princes Case DeKoning and Christopher Michael did their duet "Agony" with perfection."

-JEREMY MATTSON

"The tap dancing and Busby-Berkeley-inspired choreography was fun — and pretty non-stop as the sweet, campy dialogue bridged quickly from song to song.  (Choreographer Alisa Hauser with assistant Christopher Michael)."

-GREATER LANSING UBIQUITOUS THEATRE 

"We would be remiss not to acknowledge the hard work of the ensemble, who, aside from moving set pieces swiftly, fill the stage in many moments as dancers and auxiliary characters... Christopher Michael, who possesses a killer smile."
