Meet Michael James Reed, actor and audition coach who has worked in theatre hotspots like London, Los Angeles, and New York and appeared in more than a dozen Muny productions. We talk about about how auditions at The Muny are different, and what Michael did on both sides of the table in 2020. We discuss Michael’s background and he shares some of his wisdom on audition choices and preparation, as well as how his approach has changed with maturity. Michael tells us about his favorite auditions and what happened the first time he looked out at a Muny audience, and the conversation concludes with three words to describe The Muny.
“I think it’s an act of bravery for any actor to walk through that door and do that audition.” – Michael James Reed
