Hello! I am a recent graduate of the University of Washington where I majored in Political Communications and Drama Performance. I am most interested in working on passion projects with courageous and daring artists and producers. Things that turn me on: open dialogue & free-flowing collaboration, artistic freedom, developing shorthand in the rehearsal room, full body-soul commitment, raw & human unpolished truth, technical precision, work filled with heart and comedy, new & contemporary work, and most importantly creating pieces that make people feel less alone.
"...I appreciate Mr. Monicatti for his work in the role, his presence and appeal is great." (Skylight, ACT Seattle)
Jay Irwin, Broadway World
"Monicatti was the most convincing person on stage as Moritz, beautifully portraying discomfort, anger, and anguish....Monicatti showed Moritz’s depression and fear in a way that was visceral and deeply relatable in “Don’t Do Sadness/Blue Wind." (Spring Awakening, UW)
The Daily UW
"Beginning as a simple Barfée solo, it evolves into a Broadway-grade spectacular, complete with a spotlight, light-up shoes, and the cast kicking up their heels and singing along. Monicatti holds nothing back, diving into this marvelously odd character and number without any inhibitions. " (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, UW)
The Daily UW
"Michael Monicatti’s portrayal of Beethoven particularly stood out to me as one of the strongest performances.... The pacing of Beethoven’s character development was excellent: It was rhythmic and heartbreaking as it unfolded. Monicatti did a phenomenal job representing such a complex, confused, hurt character. He was bitter and wounded, but brave and quietly full of desire for a fresh start." (Dog Sees God, UW)
