On Monday night, after attending the Broadway Benefit earlier in the evening, Michael was asked to perform a spot from his show at Birdland, in Jim Caruso's "Cast Party" event. "Original Song", a humorous take on pop song culture, went down a storm, and resulted in an invitation to come back! - an invitation Michael will be taking up in April, when he returns with the show, this time at Don't Tell Mama on W.46th Street: Fridays April 13 & 20th 2012 [https://www.donttellmamanyc.com]
