The 28-year-old may be best known for as the adorable Treblemaker in the Pitch Perfect franchise, but initially he made his Broadway debut back in 2006 as a part of the original cast of Spring Awakening — alongside fellow A-lister Lea Michele!
And it seems the Ground Floor actor is just as excited as we are for his upcoming role as he took to Twitter and shared:
The New York native will be joined in the classic show by the Great White Way veteran, Bianca Marroquín as Anita and 18-year-old newcomer, Morgan Hernandez as Skylar's romantic lead Maria. Talk about being a Broadway baby!
Other roles are still to be announced. We'll certainly be looking forward to this production.
Do U have any favorites you hope to fill out the rest of the cast list?!
