 WAY DOWN THE ROAD is Michael's newest work written  with renowned playwright, Robert Myers. 

The year is 1933. In this one-man show, Michael becomes Billy Campbell, a Chicago musician & bartender (with an ear for poetry) who’s driving a mobster’s cadillac down Route 66 from Chicago to LA. 

America is bursting at the seams as it rises from the Depression and the Dust Bowl with bigger hopes, louder laughter, better music and more outrage .

Hop in the front seat and ride down 2500 miles of Route 66—with an eye for what’s out there, and an ear for a good song.

"The Mother Road" is what Steinbeck called this main street of America, complete with Sunday morning cordial charm and Saturday evening back-street hustle.    

THE JOURNEY INCLUDES...
