Many people were surprised that Zach Braff didn't star in his self penned play All New People in New York, but he has decided to take on the star role to make his UK debut. The play will hit the West End from 22nd February at the Duke Of Yorks Theatre for a 10 week run.
Zach Braff will play the role of Charlie (played by Justin Bartha of Hangover fame in the New York production) a guy who hits rock bottom on his 35th birthday and wants to be alone at his wealthy friends’ luxury Long Beach Island apartment. His escape is interrupted by a parade of misfits who turn his trip upside down.
Braff is best known for his starring role in the TV series Scrubs and as the writer, director and star of hit indie film Garden State. He co-starred in Trust at Second Stage and in Public Theater productions of Twelfth Night and Macbeth. His film credits include The Broken Hearts Club, Getting To Know You, Manhattan Murder Mystery, The Last Kiss, The Ex and the upcoming Oz, The Great and Powerful.
