T.R. Knight heading to Broadway

Sadly, he’s not headed there for “Grey’s Anatomy: The Musical” (although we admit we would pay to see that).

No, T.R.'s post-"Grey's" life includes a starring role in the revival of David Mamet’s play, “A Life in the Theater,” in which he will portray a novice actor opposite Patrick Stewart's portrayal of a more mature stage actor who mentors the growing thespian. This is the first time Mamet's 1977 work will be performed on Broadway.

Rehearsals are slated to begin in August, and previews are expected to begin in September. An official opening date is expected in October.

    Grey's Anatomy, critically acclaimed???? Somebody has been smoking Shonda Rhimes' droppings. Yeah, because she's such a genius compared to David Mamet.

    THIS is what he left a critically acclaimed, nationally televised, hit show to do?! It's the role that stands out on Broadway, never the actor.

    I do miss him on Grey's Anatomy but I'm happy that he's finding work. Sometimes when actors leave a hit show, it takes them a long time to find work elsewhere so good for him!
