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.

Himself a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, striving to pull something positive out of the experience with his stage show "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor".
In the show, he tells the story of the abuse I suffered and of the path to healing he found. Throughout the performance there are "feedback breaks" where audience members can comment, ask questions and share their own stories.
When the show debuted as part of the Philadelphia SoLowFest this past June, he was gratified to find many survivors sharing their stories in an atmosphere that was 100% safe and supportive.
After the debut, he partnered with the National Association of Adult Survivors of Child Abuse, to better promote "Ask a Sex Abuse Survivor" and reach more survivors.

Tonight's special guest is Dr. Pamela Pine, PhD, MPH, founder and CEO of "Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc.", a non-profit, charitable 501(c)3 organization, with a Mission to expose and stop child sexual abuse and help survivors heal worldwide. Their goals are: 1) to promote healing of victims and survivors; and 2) to celebrate the lives of those healed. Through their work, "Stop The Silence" aims to address the relationships between CSA and the broader issues of overall family and community violence, and violence within and between communities. Their focus underlines the importance of a shift in focus on positive development within our social complexes (e.g., the relationships between men, women, adults and children, cultural groups) to support peaceful - and to hinder violence-prone - relationships. "Stop the Silence" is also known for its annual "Race to Stop the Silence" event held in Washington DC each April and for its partnerships with such organizations as the annual International Violence and Trauma (IVAT) convention in San Diego and "The Lamplighters Movement."
Today, we’re welcoming Jaime Cobb with the James L. West Alzheimer Center back to the show. We’re going to be talking about communicating with your loved one who might have dementia or Alzheimer’s. Some questions we’ll be discussing are: How does dementia affect the ability to communicate? What are some common communication difficulties that someone with dementia has? What are some effective communication tips? What does it mean to ‘meet them in their world’, and how can you best do that? Today's show is sponsored in part by Lucas Funeral Homes.
