Houston’s 43 most fascinating people (Miki Johnson)
Catastrophic Theatre resident playwright Miki Johnson, who stirred excitement with the company’s 2012 world premieres of her drama “American Falls” and camp musical “Fleaven,” will have two world premieres at Catastrophic in 2014: “clean/through” in February and “The Economist” in November. Johnson was in New York last month, meeting with reps of top off-Broadway companies, including The Public, Atlantic Theatre, Clubbed Thumb, Soho Rep and Playwrights Horizons. One result is that another of her new works, “God Is a Good God,” will have a staged reading in New York in spring, helmed by Catastrophic artistic director Jason Nodler. Johnson and Nodler are partners offstage, as well.
