On June 2, 2019 Doherty closed the world premiere of Chelsea Marcantel's Tiny Houses with Cleveland Play House and Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park as Ollie, a lovable South African immigrant living in northern Oregon who sells haunted dolls on EBay.

Praise for Doherty in Tiny Houses:

On February 24, 2019 Doherty closed Chelsea Marcantel's world premiere adaptation of George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan at Delaware Theatre Company in Wilmington, DE. He played Charles the Dauphin, Stogumber the Chaplain, and the Prosecutor D'Estivet.

"Michael Doherty delights as Ollie, the free spirit fascinated with haunted dolls. Though we know little about how he wound up in a huge house in Oregon, or why he is entranced with the eerie figurines, Michael Doherty creates a character that is creatively etched." -Roy Berko, Broadway World

"...He truly believes in his poltergeist-friendly product, as he explains in a goofily sincere monologue that was so strangely compelling, I had to Google 'haunted dolls' to see if it was a real thing." -Andrea Simakis, The Plain Dealer

"Michael Doherty, with a wonderful accent... is a bundle of perpetual motion and does his best to keep everyone pleasant." 

- Mark Horning, Talkin' Broadway

Praise for Doherty in Saint Joan:

"...the virtues of this staging are considerable, including a beautiful physical production and a gifted ensemble, most of whose members play multiple roles with precision and, in the case of Michael Doherty’s Charles the Dauphin, great comic brio." -Julia M. Klein, The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Michael Doherty introduces some much needed laughs as the Dauphin."-Christine Facciolo, WHYY

"Michael Doherty, especially, creates vivid characterizations of opposite types. He’s a deliciously fey and spineless Charles the Dauphin, then becomes fierce as Prosecutor D’Estivet."-Steve Cohen, The Cultural Critic

"Michael Doherty delights as a spoiled, frivolous Dauphin, then surprises with a turnabout to Stogumber and D’Estivet." -Ellen Wilson Dilks, DelCo Culture Vultures

On October 13, 2018 Doherty closed The Foreigner at the Utah Shakespeare Festival after 62 performances. He played the titular protagonist, Charlie Baker.

Praise for Doherty in The Foreigner:

"The detail in physical comedy, particularly from Doherty, is spellbinding..." -Bruce Bennet, St. George News

"The always-great Michael Doherty" -Jonathan Decker, Meridian Magazine

"Doherty uses every inch of his lanky body to maximize the humor potential, contorting it in near superhuman ways." -Brian Passey, The Independant

"Doherty is at his comedic peak in The Foreigner... he brings genuine pathos to the role of Charlie, and I found myself sympathizing with the character’s social anxiety because Doherty made it seem like a heavy cross for Charlie to bear." -Russel Warne, Utah Theatre Bloggers Association
