Tony Award nominee Matthew Morrison, who stars on the Fox hit musical series "Glee," is eyeing a stint in the West End following his time on "Glee," according to WENN.
"I want to take a break from television," Morrison told WENN. "It's a grueling schedule, and my heart has always been on stage. I realize that even more so now. Because of this long show, I haven't been able to get back on stage. I would probably do a serious, dramatic turn in a play. I've been talking to some people over there about doing a Tennessee Williams play so here's hoping."
Morrison, who was Tony-nominated for his performance in The Light in the Piazza, has also been seen on Broadway in Footloose, The Rocky Horror Show, Hairspray, A Naked Girl on the Appian Way and South Pacific.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
