A note from Jamie O’Reilly
Michael completed the run of The Selfish Giant on Sunday, and is moving this week.  He resurfaces this Thursday at Chief O’Neill’s Pub in Chicago with our Songs of a Catholic Childhood: Lenten Tales, launching St. Patrick’s Day festivities at the award-winning pub.  Theirs is not your average fish fry!
Mid-March, Michael heads to the east coast for a short tour.  Other tours on the horizon: Detroit, MI, Door County, WI, Providence, Rhode Island and the Boston area, Little Switzerland, North Carolina and more.

If you don’t have your copy of The Selfish Giant, order now at the link below.  On the theater front, Michael is on board to complete the musical score for an ambitious production of Moby Dick with puppeteer Blair Thomas and Co, as a part of their artist residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago this fall.  That production will tour next winter.    Watch the video preview.
