            What                        People               Say


“Michael Cooper’s Masked Marvels is as subtle as it is high speed. Think of Spaulding Gray crossed with Superman, plus an amazing array of masks… Best of all was the Giant on stilts. Creating his vast self before our eyes, he began dancing on bare tiptoes with a grace that proved surprisingly beautiful…”                                                                                                                         The Irish Times


“He enthralled young and old, and ignited an entire audience’s imagination … Michael brings his wonderful characters to life with the most marvelously, strikingly beautiful masks I have ever seen.”

         Caroline Seaton-Lyon, Church Hill Theater, Church Hill, MD


 “…an exquisite performer who captivates his audience with his skill and sincerity … he never lost his gentle warmth and he always had them in the palm of his hand. I was as charmed by the person as I was by the performer.”
