Michael passed away early this morning. I was with him when he died and he was at peace.
I am planning a service and will let everyone know soon what we will be doing. I am home with my family and will continue to lean on family, friends and colleagues to help us through.
All classes at ADI will continue as scheduled. Michael wanted us to keep moving forward.
Thank you for your kindness and support.

My thoughts go out to Pam and their three children.
Thank you for all you have given me Michael.

I have always enjoyed attending performances in their studio theatre and I will be there this weekend when ABTII performs. He would introduce the company.
I am so grateful he provided these opportunities. RIP

May he have eternal rest,
May light perpetual shine upon him.

I didn't spend a lot of time at adi. Rehearsed there a few times with a few people. My strongest memory is being there for Ed Tyler. But it makes me really sad that he's gone. I know there are a lot of people like me - who weren't close, but who loved him. We'll all miss him.
