Michael is Madonna
A longtime fan of Madonna, Michael Griffiths says "Singing and dancing to Holiday is one of my earliest memories. She has been such a constant in my life. Doing this show has made me appreciate her impact on me even more; what an extraordinary career".

Direct from sell-out seasons in New York, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Hobart, Auckland and touring to Edinburgh Festival, Jersey Boys star Michael Griffiths IS Madonna.
No accent, costume or wig. Just 'Madge' accompanying herself at the piano, leading you on a journey through her tough life with tender songs. In a gender-bending explosion, experience this musical theatre star transform himself into the Queen of Pop. Strike a pose, get into the groove and express yourself as Madonna opens her heart.
From acclaimed writer/director Dean Bryant (Prodigal, Liza on an E, Britney Spears: The Cabaret), this one man pop cabaret spectacular puts the entire back catalogue of the undisputed Queen of Pop under the microscope, to find out the real stories and surprising truths behind them.
