Holy Mathematics at Dixon Place Mainstage
Small Claims Court's Sarah Matusek wrote a beautiful new play with music by Ezra Lowry about the economics of generosity among humans.
Michelle plays a surrogate mom, a goddess of a lady who lovingly takes care of anyone she meets. She a strong, independent, and brave character, who finds joy in even the simplest of things.

SALISH: an operetta
Once upon a time, a whole bunch of mismatched, severed feet washed up on the shores of Oregon for no reason. This fantastical operetta tries to explain why that might have happened.
Created by Small Claims Court and based on a show by Brooklyn's own TitlePoint, SALISH is highly disturbing, sad, and moving. Michelle played an unassumingly evil creature, a "Queen" from the "promised land", seductive yet innocent, conniving yet logical, and a little out of her mind.
People Will Talk About You Sometimes
Michelle appeared in Sarah Matusek's People Will Talk About You Sometimes as Maev, a quiet, omniscient narrator, who is a physical channel for the emotion of the play. The show was put on by Everyday Inferno at the Access Theatre Gallery.
"The play is inspired by Sarah Kane’s 4.48 Psychosis, a loose network of inter-connected strangers comes together in a show of support after a mutual friend’s unexpected attempt at suicide. People Will Talk refigures time and space to unite a mourning community in an emotional present."
MUNGUS! Spawn of the Earth
Written by the esteemed, cult sci-fi director, Douglas McKeown, the short serves to hint as to what happened to the characters who survived The Deadly Spawn (1983) years later.
Michelle plays Gail, the love interest of the leading man. She is a spunky, science student, who helps debunk the cover up of the century, discovering that there is a man-eating fungus taking over the Earth!
