Hangover Star to Debut on Broadway
Justin Bartha is to replace T. R. Knight in the revival of Lend Me a Tenor
What do you do after a massive Hangover? Why, debut on Broadway, of course.
That’s what Justin Bartha, a star of this year’s big comedy hit is doing, replacing T. R. Knight in the revival of Lend Me a Tenor, to open March 11 in New York City, according to Variety.
Bartha, 31, will play a hapless assistant in a Cleveland opera house who has to step in as the star of a production of Otello in the 1930s. He’ll be joining actors like Anthony LaPaglia and Tony Shalhoub in the nonmusical play, which will be the Broadway directing debut of Stanley Tucci.
