Toronto-based Dora and Gemini award-winning writer/director/performer/musician/educator who has worked in five languages on five continents, and who Entertainment Weekly called “one of the 100 most creative people alive today”. 

Miller’s theatre career began playing Murderer #2 in a Shakespeare-in-the-park production of Macbeth in Montreal. That small part inspired him to create his first solo show, MacHomer, which premiered at the Montreal Fringe in 1995 and ran for 17 years. Since then, he’s become one of Canada’s most versatile stage performers, with credits ranging from classical theatre to avant-garde creation, from solo shows to collective ensembles. He has performed his own work in over 200 cities around the world, including almost every major theatre in Canada. Of his many accolades, he’s particularly proud of his Dora awards for Bigger Than Jesus, including Best Performance. Miller performed BOOM on the LFAS stage and all over North America.
