Zachary Levi is heading to the Great White Way. The actor — next seen in Thor: The Dark World and always late of NBC’s spy series Chuck — will make his Broadway debut this August in First Date, a “romantic musical comedy.” (Don’t worry, he sings.)
Levi will star opposite TV and theater actress Krysta Rodriguez (Smash, The Addams Family). The show has a book by Gossip Girl writer/producer Austin Winsberg and music/lyrics by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner. Performances begin on July 9 with the opening scheduled for August 8 at the LongacreTheatre. First Date had its first production last year in Seattle where it was awarded four Seattle Times Footlight Awards, including best musical.
