Part of the monthly Zoetrope: All Story reading series, Cerveris will read The Caveman in the Hedges, a new work by Stacey Richter. Richter's story is described thusly: "Two maturing punk rockers settle into the comfort of middle age. They own a home, organize their spice rack alphabetically, and consider marriage. But when a pack of cavemen invade the town, creatures of desire, their suburban bliss is suddenly in flux." Michael Cerveris received a Tony Award nomination for his performance in the title role of The Who's Tommy, a part he also played for two years in Germany. Cerveris originated the role of architect Thomas Andrews in the Tony-winning musical Titanic and also appeared onstage in Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Total Eclipse, Abingdon Square, Life Is a Dream and the Kennedy Center mounting of Passion.
The reading will be held at Bubby's in Tribeca, 120 Hudson Street. The doors open at 6 PM, and the reading begins at 6:30 PM. For more information visit www.all-story.com.
