The following photos and videos are samples of my directing and devised works.
Nice Work If You Can Get It, Director
Music & Lyrics by George and Ira Gershwin
Book by Joe DiPietro
Mike directed a production of this award-winning musical comedy. Nominated for the Tony Award for best musical, it combines classic Gershwin songs, a farcical plot, and high-energy dances.
Mission: Implausible!, Director
is an interactive solo comedy show, conceived and written by Sandi Carroll, directed by Mike Long. It utilizes Facebook, Twitter, and Skype to engage the audience in our heroine’s effort to save the world. Audience members contribute their intelligence to help save the day, and one lucky man is chosen to be our heroine’s hero and spends most of the show onstage with Agent Karen having his courage and humanity proven in surprising and hilarious ways. This is the promotional video.
