Knight's rep confirms the actor will star in an upcoming Broadway revival of the Tony Award-winning Lend Me a Tenor...
Opening in February 2010, the farcical tale centers around a Cleveland Opera Company's production of Othello. Knight will play Max, a production assistant forced to understudy for the lead, who has passed out from a double dose of tranquillizers.
Stanley Tucci is said to be directing Knight and his yet-to-be announced costars. Back in March, it was reported that Tucci directed a reading of the Tenor revival that included Knight, Alfred Molina, Tony Shalhoub, Jan Maxwell and Marian Seldes.
But we haven't seen the last of Knight on the West Coast. Before jumping to NYC, he'll star in a two-month run of the musical Parade at L.A.'s Mark Taper Forum.
