Michael Mejia-Beal (they/them/theirs) has been a part of the Trap Door community since 2018. They studied acting and music performance at Indiana University before coming to Chicago. Michael is the Company Manager for Trap Door Theatre, where they are also a proud ensemble member. Michael is also a musician who plays guitar, piano and writes.
This is Mejia’s directorial debut; we have seen them perform in several Trap plays including Lipstick Lobotomy and The Killer. Mejia also gets credit for the sophisticated video editing and original music. After viewing this small gem a few times, I’m eager to see Mejia direct a full-length production.
Nancy Bishop, Third Coast Review (on directing ALAS)
Director Michael Mejia has made Trap Door’s compact stage into a visual feast.
Jacob Davis, Around the Town (on directing Queen C)
…Mejia invites viewers to take a step back and examine their own complacency in the societies in which they live.
…we need this unique presentation (…), a collaboration between this awesome ensemble (…Chicago’s amazing avant-garde company Trap Door Theatre) and an international group of guest performers and directors.
