Michael is the Producer, Director and Emcee for the Five Minute Follies, Philadelphia's only ongoing family friendly vintage variety show.
His interactive one-man show "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" will be staged on Sunday, June 29th at 5pm and 7pm at the Adrienne Theater in Philadelphia, as part of the SoLow Festival.
In the show he will be recounting my experiences of childhood sexual abuse, as well as his struggles with recovery and finding peace.
"Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" will also include breaks where the audience can comment, ask questions, and share their stories. The hope is to open up a frank and productive discussion on the issues surrounding childhood sexual abuse, including ways to help prevent it.
Healing is an ongoing process for Michael. After many unhealthy relationships, he has been fortunate enough to find a significant other who is completely supportive and understanding about all my daily challenges. His wife Kristie has helped to give him the strength to dig through all these awful memories and try and turn them into something that can make a positive impact.
Putting the show together has been a harrowing experience. Digging down to the root of all these experiences, and letting the emotion connected to that root come out, is both terrifying and illuminating. Just by putting together this show, Michael is healing.
Together we are stronger and together we heal. We are not alone.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) recently incorporated major changes to the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program, of which, most changes will take effect, December, 2012.
Included among the changes was the renaming of the Fatigued Driving BASIC to the HOS Compliance BASIC. This change will reflect that the category measures everything from on-duty violations to paperwork violations.
Under the newly named Basic, a truck driver could obtain as many as 24 violation points for simply writing the wrong date on his or her logs, thus resulting in unfair categories.
By changing the Driver Fatigue Basic to the Hours of Service Basic, manual form and manner violations will count against a carrier and driver, while allowing data to be gathered to show where electronics will eliminate violations.
FMCSA regulations expert, Richard Wilson joins us to discuss the changes to the CSA 7 Basics and why he believes that it is being done in order to achieve mandatory EOBR regulations.
In the first hour of the show we will discuss CSA changes then E-Log Mandate. We will discuss current issues in the transportation industry. Preventable or non preventable senerio then its Week 15 results and our week 16 NFL Picks
