Here's the Story
Michael was born in Jamestown, NY, the birthplace of the First Lady of Comedy, Lucille Ball. According to his mother, he tap danced in the womb at all hours of the night, ready to hit the stage! Michael caught the acting bug at a very early age. He often coerced his younger sister and brother to perform skits for his parents, paying them with his allowance or assistance in cleaning bedrooms.
Michael went on to earn his BFA in Musical Theatre at the State University of New York at Fredonia. In 2012, the dream continued and made the big move to New York City where he has resided for the last 11 years. Michael has gone on to work in a variety of productions regionally, Off-Broadway, workshops, and working for the Walt Disney Company.
Michael is proudly represented by Danny Prather and Meghan Manahan of Hudson Artists Agency pursuing Musical Theatre, Television, and Film.
"The Old Soul's Club" Podcast
Have a slice of JOY, with NYC Actor, Creator, and Collector Michael Valvo and Character Actor, Drag Impersonator and Entertainer, Gerry Mastrolia for "The Old Soul's Club." As Old Souls, we experience life a little differently. We don't necessarily fit in with society or people our own age. We are constantly asking the question of "What is my purpose being plopped here on Earth? Why this specific time period? No one understands." Grab a seat, because you are always welcome at THE OLD SOUL'S CLUB!
