Although he may not be a household name, Michael Cerveris is a genuine Broadway leading man—the original star of The Who's Tommy, the star of the critically-acclaimed Sweeney Todd revival, a six-time Tony nominee and two-time winner (including "Best Actor" in the reigning "Best Musical," Fun Home)—as well as a busy TV actor on series like "Treme" and "The Good Wife."

He's also a seriously talented singer-songwriter, who's just released his second solo album, Piety, recorded in New Orleans.

You can hear him perform songs from the album, backed by members of his band Loose Cattle and the Fun Home orchestra, and share thoughts about Stephen Sondheim, Pete Townshend, and David Bowie in this session in Studio A.
