Patrick Wilson to Return to Broadway in Spring 2014?
In a recent interview with the Examiner, stage and screen star Patrick Wilson revealed that he'll be heading back to Broadway next year. When asked if he had plans to return to the stage, he responded: "You know, I'm looking. I actually am going to do something in the spring for a very short while - I won't go into it but I literally agreed to it about an hour ago. But yeah, I'm going to sing again in the spring, at least for a little bit. I'm trying to find something. This is the longest I've ever gone without doing a musical. It's been like 11 years."
He continued: "But doing a musical, especially a Broadway musical, you got to sign on for a minimum, including rehearsals, 6 months or so. Unless you're going to do a small off-Broadway thing. Then you start to weigh if it's really worth it. When you've done musicals for a year, 9 months, 6 months -- I mean, hundreds of times you've done the same role - I have no desire to do that unless it's really good."
