Drew's been one of my favorite characters on the new version of Scrubs so far, so imagining the guy doing something like Broadway might be a little off. But the idea of actor Michael Mosley gaining success with his theater efforts is surely welcome, even though the sight may take some getting used to. It's a good thing he won't be wearing his white coat on stage.
According to Theater Mania, the 31-year-old actor has been given a role on the upcoming presentation of the Roundabout Theater Company. He will be playing a part in their adaptation of Tennessee Williams' classic drama The Glass Menagerie, opening later this year.
The performance will be held at the Laura Page Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre at 111 W. 46th Street. It will be for a limited engagement from March 5 to May 20, and will have its official opening on March 24.
A production by Gordon Edelstein, The Glass Menagerie stars two-time Tony Award winner Judith Ivey as Amanda Wingfield. Joining her and Michael Mosley are Patch Darragh and Keira Keeley.
The Scrubs actor has been given the role of Jim O'Connor, described on Playbill.com as "The Gentleman Caller." The official description of the play according to Roundabout is as follows:
"In this fresh interpretation of Williams' haunting memory play, Tom Wingfield (Darragh) sits writing in a hotel room, trying to forge his past into art. Soon Tom's space is overtaken by the cramped apartment he once shared with his mother Amanda (Ivey), his beloved sister Laura (Keeley) and unrequited dreams as fragile as Laura's collection of tiny glass animals. There, Tom relives the Gentleman Caller's (Mosley) visit -- the night that changed his family forever."
It's a bit difficult to imagine Mosley as anything other than Dr. Cox's #1, but this gig doesn't seem so bad for him. If you can, catch the actor on Roundabout's The Glass Menagerie this March.
