As most of you know Michael has been appearing regularly on the hit TV series Fringe. He plays the Observer, a mysterious chilling character. His co-star Jasika Nicole mentioned him in a recent interview.

" Do you see the Observer [Michael Cerveris] all over the place?

I get to hang out with him in real life more than I ever got to see the Observer [on set]. We have a couple of friends in common and we’ve gone to some functions together. And he is a really cool guy. He came to my birthday party. My partner and I ended up hanging out and talking with him for like an hour. He’s just really cool. And he has eyebrows in real life, which a lot of people don’t know. He doesn’t look nearly as bizarre as he does when he’s on set.

In the scripts when they mention the Observer, they never say “we will see the Observer doing this blah blah blah.” There will be one line and it says, “You will be observed.” That’s also really creepy ... "

It is called "An Idea Of South" (a nod to Glen Gould), and it's an exploration of southern music.  A wide ranging recital/cabaret/hootenanny of songs by southern composers or about the south running the gamut from Appalachian folk songs and Johnny Mercer to Vic Chesnutt and Gillian Welch all the way to Sondheim and Samuel Barber. 

Michael will be joined by a fantastic list of musical friends from New Orleans and New York with some very special surprise guests.
It is being held at the gorgeous Allen Room of Jazz at Lincoln Center in the Time Warner Center
