MICHAEL J. MARTINKUS is tickled to return home to OpenStage after a five-year hiatus. He was last seen with the Company in 2013 as Mark in RENT (OpenStage OPUS/Outstanding Play). He currently resides in Denver, where he works with multiple companies. Recent appearances include the regional premiere of Bullets Over Broadway (Vintage Theatre), Elizabeth Rex (Lost and Found), Cry-Baby the Musical (Equinox Theatre) and American Idiot (Town Hall Arts Center), as well as appearing as Berger in Hair (TCL) and Ash in Evil Dead: The Musical (Equinox). Other roles include Honeymoon in Vegas (regional premiere) and Sunset Boulevard (Vintage Theatre) and the regional premiere of American Idiot (Ignite Theatre). His credits with OpenStage include The Rocky Horror Show, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged), Third and The Maiden's Prayer. He received his Bachelor’s in Acting from the University of Northern Colorado. Mike would like to thank Sydney for trusting him with Princeton (a bucket-list role), his parents, Chris and Jinger, and Lacey, for everything she is and does. He loves her endlessly.
