Mike has been designing for UT Theatre’s productions for over eighteen years. In addition to working with national and international directors like Liviu Ciulei, Paul Barnes, Henryk Baranowski, Frank Heinig, and Gerald Freedman, Mike looks forward in particular to working on Casey Sam’s plays as in recent very enjoyable and rewarding projects for Dead Man’s Cell Phone and The Story of Opal and especially appreciates the opportunity to create unique music for such well-made theatre. Other standout productions include Dance in Time (the American debut of Laszlo Marton’s epic told through movement), Metamorphoses (with Joe Haj of Playmakers Theatre), the Asheville based NC Stage Company production of Hedwig, and the American debut of George Tabori’s The Brecht Files.
