Zach Braff Cast as Lead in Woody Allen's Broadway Musical
Emmy-nominated actor Zach Braff has just landed his debut Broadway role as the star of Woody Allen’s “Bullets Over Broadway”, the play adaptation of his 1994 movie that starred John Cusack, Vulture reports.
The play takes place during the roaring 20’s in the New York mob scene, where a young playwright must cast a mobster’s untalented girlfriend in his play in order to get it produced. The play will feature many jazz/ragtime numbers with Braff singing most of the major songs.
This won’t be Braff’s first time singing, as we got to hear his musical chops in the musical episode of Scrubs.
The play’s cast also features Vincent Pastore of The Sopranos and Tony-award winner Brooks Ashmanskas. The show has it’s opening night on April 10 at the St. James Theater in New York City.
