Zachary Quinto Is Set To Hit Broadway This Fall!

zachary quinto will be hitting broadway this fall in a production of tennessee williams the glass menagerie

It looks like Zachary Quinto will be trading in his Spock ears for the bright lights of Broadway in just a few months!

The Star Trek actor will be returning to the stage along with Cherry Jones, Celia Keenan-Bolger, and Brian J. Smith in the play The Glass Menagerie!

How exciting!!

The American Repertory Theater production of the Tennessee Williams play was directed by Tony-Award winning director John Tiffany and showed at some smaller venues earlier this year. But now they're ready for the big leagues and will be hitting Broadway!

The first shows will start previewing September 5th at the Shubert Theatre, and it will officially open on September 26th!

The Glass Menagerie will only be on Broadway for 17 weeks, so make sure to get your ticket before it's gone!

Another first win this evening, alongside a record-breaking SIXth!

While a lot of the focus of the 2012 Tony Awards goes to the actors for their performances and their respected nominated pieces, the accolade for Best Direction of a Musical went to first-timer John Tiffany for his gorgeous work on Once!

However, right after, Mike Nichols won his sixth award for Best Direction of a Play for his equally brilliant work on the revival of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman!

Amazing amazing!

Lots of excitement this year!

Once Is Coming To Broadway!

once-to-be-adapted-into-broadway-musical

Amazing! We always thought this movie would translate well to the stage!

The lovely 2007 indie romance Once - which tells the story of a broken-hearted Irish Busker and young immigrant who connect romantically through the music create together - is currently being adapted into a Broadway production!

Producers John N. Hart Jr., Jeff Sine and Fred Zollo, who bought the live theater rights to the film back in 2008, have announced that Irish playwright Enda Walsh will adapt the script of the John Carney film for stage, and director John Tiffany expects to have it ready for a fall of 2011 premiere!

Wow! We cannot wait to see how this ends up looking!

The simplicity of the film, combined with the amazing performances and beautiful music, really proves how just a little authenticity can elicit a powerful emotional reaction from an audience, so hopefully lightning will strike twice with the stage version!

What do U think?? Do U want to see the Once musical??
