Two time Tony winner Michael Cerveris will ring in the holidays Dickens style this December!
Cerveris will play Ebenezer Scrooge in Pittsburgh CLO's 31st annual production of A Musical Christmas Carol, running December 9–23.
"I feel very grateful being invited to join the Pittsburgh CLO as part of this most treasured holiday tradition," said Cerveris. "I think nearly all of us see ourselves somewhere in the tale of Scrooge's redemption. The story's message, that we can all still change for the better, is one that means more than ever these days. And getting to share the ways this tale makes a place for every one of us at the holiday table...well it's a true gift."
Cerveris is a Broadway favorite, having appeared in the original Broadway productions of The Who's Tommy, Titanic, LoveMusik, and In The Next Room, as well as revivals of Sweeney Todd, Evita, Cymbeline, and Hedda Gabler. He has received six Tony nominations throughout his career, winning twice for the roles of John Wilkes Booth in Assassins, and Bruce Bechdel in Fun Home.
A sensory friendly performance of A Musical Christmas Carol will be presented December 17 at 10 AM, and the theatre will continue its long-running tradition of student matinees. ASL interpreters are available upon request.
