Zach Braff coming to London with his play All New People

By guest writer @polyg

According to Deadline, Zach Braff will come to London with his play All New People, for a 10-week run at the Duke of York Theatre starting 22 February. The play, written by Braff, opened off Broadway in July, with a cast that included Justin Bartha, David Wilson Barnes, Anna Camp and Krysten Ritter, but not Braff himself. In the London production, Braff will also star in the role of Charlie, who on his 35th birthday escapes at his wealthy friends’ Long Beach Island flat, but things don't go according to plan.

I am not easily impressed by American actors doing theatre in London, but this could be proved interesting.  The play is described as an angst-filled comedy, and I liked Garden State (the 2004 film that was Braff's directorial and screenwriting debut). I might have liked a smaller venue, but one can't have everything.

Braff’s stage credits as an actor include a starring role in Paul Weitz’s Trust (an off Broadway production in 2010), and playing Sebastian in Twelfth Night, a Shakespeare in the Park production.
