“He thinks on his feet, he’s extremely versatile, he’s one of the funniest people I’ve ever met,” says Lynn Meyers of the Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati. “One of the most popular actors on Cincinnati stages,” adds The Cincinnati Inquirer.
With roots in comedy and improv, Michael Bath has done plenty of heavy roles as well. Cincinnati’s CityBeat Entertainment Awards for 2010, for example, cited his portrayal of Roy Cohn in Angels in America. And now he will play the role of Henry Hunter in The Whistler. I got to meet Michael last week when I was in town to see the theater and talk with production staff; he helped audition a youngster for the teenage role of Robin, and he’s going to rock the house. I feel lucky to be working with him.
