Sweeney Todd Actor Haunted By Bad Dreams

Broadway, New York sensation MICHAEL CERVERIS was haunted by nightmares after taking on the role of demon barber SWEENEY TODD. The actor won a Tony Award nomination last week (ends19MAY06) for his role in the musical and admits it upset his sleep patterns when he started preparing to play Todd. In one, he kept dreaming that he was trying to help co-star PATTI LuPONE escape from an asylum. He explains, "I had a lot of nightmares during rehearsal because the creative stuff is being stirred up at that time. "I was in one dream and we were trying to break Patti LuPone out of an insane asylum. I'm not exactly sure what all that means. I do remember it was a dark and scary dream."
