Michael stars as one of the leads in the cast of Naomi Wallace’s “The Liquid Plain” at The Signature Theater, directed by the award-winning Kwame Kwei-Armah.

“The acting is largely excellent…(Charles Isherwood, NY Times).” “The Liquid Plain is well acted, …and most rewarding…” (Jonathan Mandell, NY Theater). “Michael Izquierdo was excellent in his depiction of Cranston; he left you with mixed emotions on one hand feeling sympathetic for his plight, enraged when he took advantage of Adjua” (Mary Anitha Parris, NY Theater Guide). “A compelling drama in the story of John Cranston…(Zachary Stewart, Theatermania).

On the docks of late 18th century Rhode Island, two runaway slaves, Adjua and Dembi, plan a desperate and daring run to freedom. When a chance encounter triggers an unexpected collision of worlds, painful truths are uncovered and the brutality of past crimes spills into the next generation. Winner of the 2012 Horton Foote Prize for Promising New American Play, The Liquid Plain brings to life a group of people whose stories have been erased from history.
