Cerveris, long a favorite of Stephen Sondheim having starred in Sondheim's musicals Assasins (Tony Award), Sweeney Todd, Road Show, and Passion, also has an entire other career as an indie singer/songwriter and guitarist. He can sing pretty much anything, from German lieder to Italian love songs to Tommy in The Who's rock opera of the same name.
