Glee's Jonathan Groff to make West End debut

Friday, 27th Aug 2010  

Fans of Glee may well be flocking to see Jonathan Groff make his West End debut at the beginning of September.

But they could be in for a bit of a surprise, as the actor is leaving behind the role of singing high school student Jesse St James to try out something a little different.

He is to take on a role in a new production of Deathtrap, where he will play the part of young writer Clifford who sends a script off to veteran playwright Sydney Bruhl, with sinister consequences.

The 25-year-old star has spoken of his excitement at taking on the role in the Ira Levin play and being able to co-star with Shakespearian actor Simon Russell Beale.

Deathtrap has already opened for previews, with dozens of fans crowding the stage door to catch sight of Groff.

The play will open fully on September 7th at the Noel Coward Theatre, although it is not recommended that anyone under the age of 12 attends due to its gory content.
