Join our hero Michael John as he transforms his story of loss, fear, and regret through an experience in the crowd of a concert headlined by celebrated pop diva The Priestess. Together, you'll dance through a collective creative process that looks fearlessly to the past in order to make a more fabulous future for us all. Turn up the volume and move through the agony and ecstasy of life, towards understanding the unifying truth that Everyone is Dying and So Am I!

Everyone is Dying and So Am I is the debut solo show by creator and performer Michael John Ciszewski. Following the development in Open Theatre Project’s Plays in Progress lab for new work—including readings, workshops, and previews throughout Spring/Summer 2019—Everyone is Dying received a premiere, sold-out workshop performance with Open Theatre Project in Boston in September 2019. Everyone is Dying then played two sold-out performances at New York City’s Theatre Row in October 2019, as an official selection of the 10th Annual United Solo Theatre Festival—spotlighting the best in international solo performance.
