Tony Winner John Gallagher, Jr. Gets New Gig
When it rains, it pours! John Gallagher Jr., who won a featured actor in a musical Tony a few years back for his performance in Spring Awakening and who is now rocking out in the Green Day inspired musical American Idiot will be moving a block away to join the cast of the upcoming play Jerusalem. Gallagher's last performance in his current show will be on February 27th in order that he can go almost directly into rehearsals for Jerusalem, which begins previews on April 2nd. Jerusalem, a drama by Jez Butterworth, was originally produced in London, where it starred Mark Rylance, who will be transferring with the show after his recent star turn in La Bete opposite David Hyde Pierce.
