Lane had too much time on his hands last summer. So, he reunited with the team behind his previous shows "Now You Know" and "Glass Half Full", Director Jay Rogers and Musical Director William TN Hall, to see what they could come up with. Why? Just Because!
In his review of the show Stephen Mosher of BroadwayWorld Cabaret said "Michael Kirk Lane is certainly reason enough to see a show" and called Lane "one of the most popular performers and people working in cabaret today." Cabaret Scenes magazine called the show "pure entertainment" and said Lane is "showcasing his sweet tenor" and Michael Barbieri of Nitelifeexchange has said "You really can't go wrong with Michael Kirk Lane! He's charming; he's childlike; he knows his way around comedic material and yet he can melt your heart with a tender ballad."
Lane who was seen in the 2015 Off-Broadway production of Hell's Belles, is also a member of the voice cast for the children's web series "The Flying Tent." Additionally he is a frequent collaborator and backup singer for artists such as Ginger Minj (Drag Race) and Leslie Carrara-Rudolph (Sesame Street)
