Michael Cassano

Michael Cassano as James

Michael Cassano: Abandoned by wolves and raised by his parents, Michael arrived at our theater during the worst pandemic in 100 years (hmm… suspicious).  Apparently, he’s worked consistently in TV, film, commercials, and theater in several regions throughout the US, which isn't bad for a guy with a background in cars and real estate. When he's not exercising his gearhead skills or rehearsing, he daydreams about chicken wings and ponders how to pronounce "djbouti."
