N.Y. minute: Michael Mayer

Legit director

Michael Mayer is the director of the Tony award-winning Broadway musical “Thoroughly Modern Millie” and his feature film debut “A Home at the End of the World,” based on the novel by Michael Cunningham. He’s currently prepping the Broadway revival of Arthur Miller’s “After the Fall” for a July 29 opening.

Roots: Born and raised in Washington, D.C.

Comfort zone: Resident of New York for 24 years and currently lives in “Chelsea Heights, 27th between 6th & 7th. That’s what I call it.”

Gotham influence: “I see New York as this enormous brain filled with memories of sounds, smells, tastes and shifting colors that change form hour to hour. There is this influence of instantaneous mutability and the bombardment by a ton of information that helps me create my worlds.”

Culture club: “MoMA really needs to come back soon. I collect books and fountain pens, so you can find me at the Strand bookstore or Art Brown’s International Pen Shop, always spending more than I intended.”

Food fix: “Cafe un Deux Trois is my absolute favorite (as well as many other legiters). Jose the maitre’d is the greatest and they never kick you out!”
