That awkward moment when your Book of Mormon parody Purim Play rehearsal requires you to play Hasa Diga Eebowai in the sanctuary. ~@MicahHerstand, on Twitteractor icon

Micah is an actor

A triple-threat, Micah is as comfortable playing the stuttering, tragic Billy Bibbit in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, as the exuberant, crooning Jamie Wellerstein in The Last 5 Years, as a featured tapper in Thoroughly Modern Millie—all roles he has relished. With 20 years of acting, singing, and dancing experience, Micah comes alive on the stage—his second home. A baritone, with a powerful belt and falsetto, Micah sings with his heart on his sleeve in roles such as Fiddler on the Roof’s Motel, and with a quiet courage in Ragtime’s Tateh. Micah’s comic roles are grounded in humanity, whether the love-struck Vertnumnus in Metamorphoses or Froth in Measure for Measure, his ability to draw a laugh never overshadows the truth of his characters’ circumstance. When embodying the ethereal Cheshire Cat in the dance show Alice, his juxtoposition of a full-bellied laugh with beady-eyed dominance sent chills down the audience’s spine. As an invited member of Playwrights Ink in Madison, WI, Micah assisted playwrights by reading and critiquing their plays, a role for which he was repeatedly asked back. Whether he is on stage, in rehearsal, or workshopping a play, Micah loves the way theatre explores the human condition in a living medium, with each moment evolving from the last, ever changing, even in stillness.
