Stage

Sieber made his Broadway debut as Agis in the musical Triumph of Love with Betty Buckley and F. Murray Abraham. Following this role, he appeared as a replacement in the roles of Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, Trevor Graydon in Thoroughly Modern Millie and Billy Flynn in Chicago. Sieber was also cast in the role of Rapunzel's Prince in the revival of Into the Woods in 2002.

In late 2004, Sieber originated the role of Sir Dennis Galahad in the Broadway musical Monty Python's Spamalot, which premiered in March 2005. Sieber was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical for this role. After leaving the cast in July 2006, he made his London debut in the same role in October 2006, before leaving early 2007. On June 1, 2007, Sieber sang tenor in the world premiere of Eric Idle's Not the Messiah (He's a Very Naughty Boy) in Toronto. On January 18, 2008, Sieber returned to Broadway to resume his role as Sir Dennis Galahad in Monty Python's Spamalot.

He most recently played the role of Lord Farquaad in Shrek the Musical which opened on Broadway December 14, 2008, after an out-of-town tryout in Seattle. For this role Sieber was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical, the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical, and the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance.[1][2][3][4] He played his final performance January 3, 2010 when the show closed on Broadway.

Sieber's off-Broadway credits include the revival of The Boys in the Band and Avow. He also appeared in the New York Philharmonic's production of Camelot.

Television

Sieber has starred in two television series: Two of a Kind with the Olsen twins and It's All Relative with John Benjamin Hickey and Harriet Sansom Harris.

In early 2007, Sieber was scheduled to film a pilot episode for an NBC comedy, Wildlife, playing an eccentric zoologist. The pilot did not make the final cut and was not picked up.[5]

Sieber guest starred in the Pushing Daisies episode "Smell of Success" as Napolean LeNez. On Playhouse Disney, Sieber guest starred in the Johnny and the Sprites episode as the Make-a-Mess Troll.

Personal life

While It's All Relative was being produced, Sieber came out as gay and said that he was happily partnered to actor turned French chef Kevin Burrows.[6]

Sieber is heavily involved in Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA) and has appeared in several of its Broadway Cares revues, among other events the charity produces.

Christopher's middle name is Luverne after his maternal grandfather.[7] Sieber frequently attends theatre in New York, teaches master classes and enjoys riding his bike. He moved to Lake Tamarack, New Jersey not too long ago, and lives in the middle of the lake in a house on an island.[8]
