“Burger is extraordinary. A singer who can act and an actor who can elevate an audience out of itself into the middle of the story she is conveying” Glam Adelaide

Following on from the success of Exposing Edith, Michaela Burger’s new show A Migrant’s Son tells the moving story of her Greek father’s migrant experience. Featuring Michaela’s astonishing vocals, a live band, bouzouki player and local choir, you’ll traverse 100 years of
history - from Russia to the Australian outback, following the
hardship, ingenuity, tragedy and triumph present in all migrants’ stories.
Igniting memories of a story that millions of Australians can relate to, Michaela pays tribute to her Greek migrant family and hard-working, fun loving larrikin father Luke, who defied all odds. Michaela tells this family story with poignancy, heart and comical aplomb.

Warnings: Occasional Coarse Language, Suitable for ages 13+

“A far-reaching generational story that crosses divides, ignites memories and pulls at your heart-strings…” Stage Whispers
