Stephen McCall is an author, playwright, keynote speaker, and recently a single dad raising two. Around age 9, he began to show symptoms of a disorder called Tourette Syndrome. A black kid from Detroit with a disability, raised in a single parent home, and labeled as a problem child with no future, life as Stephen knew it was a mess - there was no point in living. A distinguished military veteran (US Air Force), a senior advisor for the U.S. Congress, and being invited to meet with foreign countries' Vice Presidents, for Stephen seemed near impossible. With a never ending adventure and quite impressive resume, Stephen loves turning impossibles into reality. His lifelong dream has always been to perform on Broadway. Unfortunately his singing voice and two left feet have never cooperated with this amazing plan so the closest he has gotten to the stage is buying orchestra seats. His humorous method of storytelling and passion for writing gave him this daring idea of producing his own show. Stephen McCall is making his NYC (a few subway stops from Broadway) solo performance debut at The Triad Theatre in, “Dig Deep”, a story about his life struggling with adversity, bullying, Tourette syndrome, depression, and teen suicide. Stephen takes his audience on a journey to motivate and engage while sharing how to take a mess in life and turn it into a message. Through tears, suspense, drama, and laughter, “Dig Deep” is guaranteed to inspire and empower people to realize their full potential. Show disclaimer and warning: Audiences may experience feelings of empowerment to dream big, and go home to start turning their impossibles into reality. Enjoy an evening of entertainment while Stephen shares his story in this live performance ending with a short Q&A session. With the ultimate goal to premier a full stage musical, guest broadway actor and star Ellis Gage will be singing the debut of “Dig Deep”, a new original song co-written/composed by the late Lauren Widner (1978-2020), a beloved composer, songwriter, director, playwright, and performer along with Ryan McCurdy.
