Brian Michaels

Brian Michaels got his start in radio at the age of 15 back in 1989. The early 90s saw a move to Moorhead, MN (Fargo, ND) for school and more radio opportunities. Brian found his niche in 1997 when he started a brand new weekly radio show called The A cappella Hour. Over the past 20 years Brian built up his knowledge and contacts in the a cappella world, as well as his CD collection (over 5000 a cappella CDs). Brian has been a judge at the Denver and Chicago Harmony Sweepstakes competition numerous times as well as a judge and nominator for the CARA’s (Contemporary A Cappella recording Awards) as well as serving as the Midwest regional Ambassador for CASA (The Contemporary A Cappella Society). Brian’s yearly holiday radio special “Holiday Harmonies: an a cappella Christmas” has been heard around the country. Brian grew up watching his sister and friends perform on stage, as well as all 3 of his own children. Brian has been involved in the local theatre community for over 10 years and in 2019 launched a new podcast focusing on the local theatre scene. This podcast is called Stage Notes with Brian Michaels.

BWW Review: HAIRSPRAY at FMCT
July 30, 2020

First off, let me say that I am so glad there is actually theatre to review. I also want say how cool this venue is. The Lights in West Fargo (3100 Sheyenne) is an amazing outdoor venue for a show. Do yourself a favor and go check this place out, hopefully to see one of the last few showings of Hairspray.

BWW Review: FOOTLOOSE at Summer Arts Intensive
July 29, 2020

Everybody cut footloose because Theatre is back in the F-M area after a very long break. When most of the summer programs (and spring for that matter) were forced to close, luckily a couple of local productions decided to push forward, and one of these is Summer Arts Intensive and their production of Footloose.

BWW Review: THE PAJAMA GAME at Fargo South High Theatre
December 13, 2019

The musical based on a 1953 novel that made it's Broadway debut in 1954 comes to life at Fargo South High Theatre. The story about a labor dispute at a pajama factory with workers fighting over a 7 ½ cent raise. This one has a special place with director Kevin Kennedy as he himself played Pop in this show while he was a freshman in high school.

BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL At Fargo Moorhead Community Theatre
December 9, 2019

There are so many Christmas traditions I can think of that hold a special place in my heart. Decorating the tree, the first snow, the lights at Lindenwood Park, Home Alone, It's a Wonderful Life, Die Hard and of course the Charles Dickens Classic story of Ebenezer Scrooge. It's probably been 20 years since I have seen a stage production of this but I always try to find the classic movie to watch every year. I was beyond excited to see this show on the FMCT schedule and as usual they do not disappoint.

BWW Review: CINDERELLA at Richland Public Schools
November 25, 2019

Kind of like the story, a small town high school puts on the glass slipper and attends the ball. A school with a total attendance of 103 kids (7-12) and a total cast of only 23 kids came together and put on a fun show with their production of Cinderella. Director Lanah Akvik and Vocal Director Mark Aamold should be very proud of what everyone pulled off.

BWW Review: THE OUTSIDERS at West Fargo Sheyenne
November 22, 2019

Based on the classic novel by S.E. Hinton which she started writing at the age of 15 in 1965 and published in 1967, The Outsiders is a coming of age novel about the conflict between two rival gangs: The Greasers and The Socs (Short for Socials). The book is written in the first person as told by Ponyboy Curtis. The play does try to stick to that also by having Ponyboy narrate numerous parts. The Play was first published in 1990 and I hear there is a musical adaptation in the works.

BWW Review: NOISES OFF! at Fargo Moorhead Community Theatre
September 11, 2019

For those not familiar with the story, Noises Off is a 1982 play by Michael Frayn. This is a three-act show and each Act hilariously shows us how a play comes together or at least try to get through ONE ACT. Act one shows the final dress rehearsal before the play opens. Act 2 shows a matinee performance about a month later, but in a twist, we see the performance from back stage. Act 3 is a performance near the end of the run. Mix in a few love triangles, fights and wonderful physical and you get a recipe for fun.
