Michael Cerveris is known to many for his roles in Stephen Sondheim’s 'Assassins' and 'Sweeney Todd,' and for his role in Lisa Kron and Jeanine Tesori’s musical stage adaptation of Alison Bechdel's 'Fun Home.' Cerveris even fronts a country band, called Loose Cattle. However, Cerveris will forever hold place in annals of rock n roll history for his role in 1993 Broadway run of The Who’s 'Tommy.' Recently, Cerveris opened up about how Pete Townshend taught him how to rock.
Last Friday, The National took to the stage for the first time in 2015 for a special performance at the MusicNOW Festival in Cincinnati. In a surprising move, too, the band teamed up with none other than the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.
