The Allen Room, Frederick P. Rose Hall, Broadway at 60th St.
Description: What this night will be, very simply, is a great singer doing great songs. 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. Playbill.com has described him as "arguably the most versatile leading man on Broadway." On January 21st he will present "An Idea of South," a genre-defying recital/cabaret/hootenanny of songs ranging from the Carter Family and Johnny Mercer to Vic Chestnutt and Samuel Barber with guest musicians from New Orleans.
