T.R. Knight Takes Aim at Broadway
The former Grey's star will headline a stage farce to open in 2010
No sooner does T.R. Knight strip off his Grey’s Anatomy scrubs than the former George O’Malley has landed his next gig – on Broadway.
The actor, who announced his departure from the ABC hit last month, is set to star in a revival of playwright Ken Ludwig’s 1989 farce, Lend Me a Tenor, likely to open on the Great White Way in February 2010, reports Variety.
The production will be further distinguished in that its director will be a first timer, actor Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada and the upcoming Julie & Julia, also starring Meryl Streep).
Lend Me a Tenor involves a catastrophic production of the opera Otello. The role Knight, 36, will play, Max, was originated on Broadway by future Alias star Victor Garber, who earned a Tony nomination for it.
