Michael stars in Sondheim's Tony Award Winning Musical, Passion

Michael's sudden availability has already been seized upon by the organizers of this summer's hugely anticipated celebration of the works of Stephen Sondheim at Washington DC's Kennedy Center. Michael will star as Giorgio in Sondheim's dark and difficult - Passion. The show also stars Judy Kuhn (Les Miserables, Chess) as Fosca and Rebecca Luker (Phantom, Secret Garden) as Clara.
