Master and Commander War on the High Seas of The Moon By Joe Piteo 5 Stars- "Just my kind of listen. The story was exceeded by the performance. I did not want it to end." -Audible Listener Hunter Killer: War on the High Seas of the Moon, Book 2 By Joe Piteo "Michael Kirby brings both exceptional talent and professionalism to the production of the Ocean of Storms audiobooks. Kirby illuminates an incredibly diverse set of characters from Texan Marines to Bedouin sheiks with great skill. Authors are protective of their characters, but Kirby adds to them. He lifts them from the page, adding color and dimensions to the text. Michael Kirby has worked through the pages of this series with great care, precision, independent research, and always on schedule." .- Joe Piteo, Author "Michael Kirby gives a performance of such authenticity, decency and courage that he almost walks away with the play. Kirby allows us, the audience, to see his character mature both as prince and son. Kirby's ease with the language makes a difficult role seem far less complicated. This is a dazzling portrayal, indeed, rich in integrity and innocence, as well." -Noho arts distict .com "Dynamic boy-next-door Kirby gives the evening's other standout performance in a role that allows him to bridge the play's two extremes-the dramatic realism of scenes involving English royals and the Farrelly Brothers-style comedy.” -Stage Scene LA "Kirby stands out as particularly talented… Kirby brings vitality and exuberance...The audience can instantly fall in love with him" - New House "He makes it impossible for the audience not to fall for his charm the moment he enters the stage" -New York Theatre Guide
