Michael Cerveris. Answering questions from any universe.
Well, I've been doing theater almost my whole life. I started really young in university productions at the college where my dad was teaching, starting with Brecht in second grade, and it was a long, strange trip from there to TOMMY, to HEDWIG, to John Wilkes Booth, to Sweeney Todd, with detours for Ian on FAME, and September on FRINGE, and Castro on THE GOOD WIFE... and now Bruce Bechdel in FUN HOME.
FUN HOME is playing now (http://funhomebroadway.com/) and is nominated for 12 Tony Awards, and I have a parallel life where I played guitar for Bob Mould of Hüsker Dü... Frank Black of the Pixies, Pete Townshend of The Who, and my own solo records and bands.
What don't I do? Sleep.
I'm here with Victoria from reddit in NYC. Let's take some questions.
Update: I'd just like to say thank you to everybody who wrote in, and apologize to those questions that we didn't get to. You can tweet @cerveris and Facebook me questions so that in my vast amounts of spare time, I will write you back. Meanwhile, I hope you will come see FUN HOME at Circle in the Square, maybe catch my band Loose Cattle roaming around town, and pick up our records at iTunes.
And hopefully - soon - I'll have news about my second solo record, called "Piety" that I recorded in New Orleans and I'm looking for a new home for, soon.
