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.
'Fun Home' is one of the most popular shows on Broadway today. However, there is one song from the show that many fans have not heard in full, until now. Actor Michael Cerveris ('Hedwig and The Angry Inch,' 'Sweeney Todd,' 'Assassins') has recorded one of the show’s trunk songs to life with the help of his country band, Loose Cattle. The track, “Pony Girl,” is only heard in part in the show as as a 45 second a cappella lullaby. Now, Loose Cattle has released an all new music video for the track.

Stravinsky's eccentric beats, note clusters, pipings and wails sounded neither old-fashioned nor self-consciously weird, and the ensemble made them a joy to hear, while Michael Cerveris and three dancers told the kind of devilish tale that never gets old.
