Michael McDonough

Assistant Vice President, Professional Licensing Licensing

Michael McDonough’s career in theatre can be traced back to the 5th grade when he played the turkey in his grade school Thanksgiving assembly. He attended The National Theater Institute and with a degree from Wabash College, Michael worked as an actor for many years before joining Music Theatre International where he managed the Amateur Department under the tutelage of Steve Spiegel. Recruited by On The Road, Michael became the Booking Manager for the national non-Equity tours of Hairspray, Movin’ Out, Sweeney Todd, etc. Michael then landed as Company Manager for Norwegian Cruise Line – originating the role of supervisor to 60+ artists with over 50 weekly performances of the branded shows Blue Man Group, Cirque Dreams, Nickelodeon at Sea, Legends in Concert, The Second City, and Howl at the Moon. A longtime resident of Hell’s Kitchen, Michael happily treks to TRW through Times Square twice a day. The photo, by the way, bears little resemblance to him!
