Born John Michael Finley under the sign of Leo on the 10th of August of an unspecified year, in Jonesboro, Arkansas USA, J.

Early Life and Education

Michael actually grew up in Lebanon, Missouri, since his family moved there when he was very young. He was raised by his father Wayney Finley and his mother Betsy Finley of unknown professions, the second eldest of five siblings – a brother Josh, and three sisters. It is unknown when he took an interest in what he does today, as well as any of his childhood hobbies. It is unknown what high school he attended and when he matriculated, although he surely did, as he later enrolled at Roosevelt University’s College of Performing Arts in Chicago, from where he graduated with a degree in musical theatre. While still in high school, Michael performed as both a singer and an actor in various school plays.


It is unknown when exactly Michael graduated, but it is a fact that he soon after started his professional acting career in Chicago. He is known to have starred across various theatres, such as the Lyric Opera in Chicago, Paramount Theatre, Drury Lane Theatre, Writers’ Theatre, Marriott Theatre, Mercury Theatre and Court Theatre, where he mostly performed as both a singer and an actor. Still, no dates are specified, and the theatres aren’t listed in any specific order, as it is unknown where he performed first. He kept going like this until 2015, when he ultimately moved to New York City and made his Broadway debut as part of the ensemble of “Les Miserables”, specifically as the understudy for Jean Valjean. After the play, he went on to make his film debut in the lead role of Bart in “I Can Only Imagine”, in which he is also credited as a singer for the eponymous movie track. This was Michael’s 2015 project, although the movie itself came out in 2018. After the production, he returned to Broadway as the standby for Elder Cunningham in “Book of Mormon,” actually debuting in the said role in the West End in 2018.
