  Michael wrote an original song and music for the new production of The Booth Variations. This time it's his brother actor Todd Cerveris who takes center stage giving a mesmerizing performance as Edwin Booth.

Todd is also co-creator of this unique and exciting multimedia production. The show uses "video, soundscape and performance (both live and pre-recorded) to create a surreal meld of past and present." It is a product of three year collaboration by Todd Cerveris, Nick Philppou and Caridad Svich.

Michael also appears via video as John Wilkes Booth.

The Booth Variations
, produced by The Moonshine Project, will make its world premiere in New York at the 59E59 Theatre.
