Emmy award winner and Glee favorite Darren Criss will be returning to Broadway this spring, in the revival of American Buffalo. Criss will portray Bobby, one of three hustlers who want to get more of the American dream.
The play will begin previews on March 24, 2020, with an opening night slated for April 14 at the Circle in the Square Theater. Criss joins Emmy and Tony winner Lawrence Fishburne (Donny) and Oscar winner Sam Rockwell (Teach). The play is written by David Mamet.
Darren took to twitter to announce his return to Broadway
All I wanted when I started acting was to one day perform the works of America’s greatest playwrights. If I got lucky, I could do it with America’s greatest actors. If I got REALLY lucky… maybe I could do both on BWAY- with my FAVORITE actors.
