The Reconstruction of Michael

Written & Directed by Nick Armstrong


The Garage Theatre is very excited and proud to present its very first World Premiere, The Reconstruction of Michael by Nick Armstrong, with an 11 performance run from July 29th thru August 20th in downtown Long Beach.  The space…The Garage Theatre…is located at 251 E. 7th Street 30 yards west of Long Beach Blvd.

The Reconstruction of Michael both written and directed by Nick Armstrong is the story of a man named Michael.Michael is lost. He has no soul, no passion, and no love – all of the key ingredients to his humanity. Set in the desert, Michael finds himself stumbling upon the things he has forgotten. With the help of a Park Ranger, he discovers that the desert is more than it seems – that his humanity is trapped and must be reconstructed and released. 

The Garage Theatre was founded on the belief that independent non-commercial theatre is vital to the future of the art form.  The organization is a collaborative ensemble of artists and performers that strive to create a diverse body of work which not only includes the overlooked works of contemporary playwrights, but also interactive productions for children, and original pieces. The Garage Theatre upholds the idea that theatre is the most communal of art forms, and is committed to cultivating a new generation of theatergoers by producing affordable works for the community. The company’s past productions include: Shepard’s Last Supper: A Monologue and One-Act by Sam Shepard, Lee Blessing’s Two Rooms, Tom Stoppard’s Artist Descending a Staircase, A Cowhand’s Christmas by Zoe Bell & James R. Hurst, Goose and Tomtom by David Rabe (nominated for three OC Weekly Awards), The Fourth Wall by A.R. Gurney and 1999 Tony Award Winning Side Man by Warren Leight.
