I have been a huge fan of Michael's for awhile. From the show Titanic. Tommy to especially his incredible performance in Sweeney Todd, he's so versatile. I recently saw that he narrated a ballet called the Knickerbocker Suite by Elliot Arkin. I would love to hear what his experience was like to work with the innovative and controversial artist.
