Michelle is proud to have been the Producer for the Off-Broadway megahit, Schoolhouse Rock Live!, a show Entertainment Tonight called “A phenomenon…

She also produced Emmy Laybourne‘s comedy show, The Miss Alphabet City Beauty Pageant and Spelling Bee. The New York Post lauded the production as “…an exceptionally funny three-woman show that restores faith in our country’s comedic future.”

Presently, she is assisting the estate of Jeff Corey to bring his memoir, Improvising Out Loud: My Life Teaching Hollywood How to Act to the public.  “Jeff Corey actor, teacher, patriot! Would that my generation had such an inspiring and honest advocate.”―Martin Sheen

Improvising Out Loud is a personal history of a vital art from the 1930s to 2000. It describes cogently and with flair the role of acting, the complex practices on stage and screen, and what it takes to be an actor.”―Mollie Gregory, author of Women Who Run the Show and Stuntwomen: The Untold Hollywood Story


Michelle is the innovation behind Of Course You Can Sing! Phone Coaching, “One of the greatest voices I’ve ever heard…I’m a voice teacher myself & I am definitely endorsing this product!” ~ Shari U, New York.


Michelle’s directed the one-woman show Toasted, which won San Francisco’s  “Best of the Fringe” award. The San Francisco Chronicle wrote, “Toasted…is brightly comic, painfully brave and, ultimately, terribly tragic…deftly staged by Michelle Cohen…well worth seeing.


Michelle as Lizzy in Baby, The New York Times wrote, “Michelle Cohen sparkles as Lizzy, Danny’s pregnant roommate and spouse-equivalent. Ms. Cohen lets us share Lizzy’s battle to change from student to mother without losing her sense of self.”


Actually, There is Something Under the Bed  “As a psychologist, parent, and perpetual student of spirituality, I whole-heartedly endorse this book from each and all of my perspectives. It offers the reader a simple, practical, concise, and action-oriented approach to empowering children and their parents with methods for conquering night-time fears…Great purchase, great value!!!”~Rob K, New York.
Michelle’s system…makes a great deal of sense to the most important people – children themselves…Michelle really outlines these things step by step very well in the book and again this is an excellent resource for professionals who work with children because its something that not only works but has worked many times in the work that she has used…(Michelle) tells us how we can sharpen our own inner sensitivities, this is very interesting stuff. I think people who have had experiences like this, and I know I have, sometimes don’t know how to interpret them but there again, its hard to deny them sometimes…this book would make a terrific stocking stuffer…cuz its small, its easy to read, its quick to read and just has tons of good information.”  -Dr. James Sutton, psychologist and host, The Changing Behavior Network

MenOpop (a Menopause Pop-up and Activity Book), “Enough with the fretful back-and-forth about hormone replacement and will it or won’t it kill you…the moment is ripe for ‘MenOpop,’ a pop-up and activity book for the growing woman.” ~Craig Stoltz, Health Editor, The Washington Post.

Of Course You Can Sing!. “Rare is the how-to book that impels you to stop reading and try your hand (or, in this case, voice) at a performing art form. That’s precisely what happened for me and it was thoroughly inspiring to do so…(It doesn’t hurt that she also has a wonderful sense of humor; this book had me laughing almost as often as I was singing.)…This book really helped me feel confident that, by doing what the author suggests, I can be proud of my voice once again.” ~Sean P, California


TESTIMONIALS about the sessions

The Intuition Tool Kit, “I love the Intuition Toolkit! Michelle has such a wonderful voice that is both comforting and grounding. Her explanations are always clear and thorough and inclusive of every kind of listener… as spiritual as this work is, she allows room for people to use it like science or math or Facebook if they so choose… not even the biggest skeptics can deny that we all have “gut feelings” regardless of whether we listen to them. That’s the great thing about her approach…she doesn’t preach, she simply shares her knowledge and experience in a very loving way.” ~Stephanie S, New York


I love reading Michelle’s weekly tune in’s to the universe, they always make me smile and feel like somehow I’m on track…
