Zach Braff to star in 'Bullets Over Broadway'

By

NEW YORK (AP) — Zach Braff will make his Broadway debut next year in a musical adaptation of Woody Allen's crime caper "Bullets Over Broadway."

The only person who might be more excited than Braff is his dad. Says Braff: "If my father loved two things most, it was Woody Allen movies and Broadway musicals."

"Bullets Over Broadway" follows a struggling young playwright who is forced to cast a mobster's talentless girlfriend in his latest drama. Braff will play the hero.

Braff says he's thrilled to be in the show, and keeps "waking up expecting it to be a dream."

Five-time Tony Award-winner Susan Stroman will direct and choreograph the production. Performances will start in 2014 at the St. James Theatre.
