Jonathan Groff Celebrates 'A New Brain' Opening

Jonathan Groff and his Looking co-star Frankie J. Alvarez get cozy at the opening night party for A New Brain on Wednesday night (June 24) at City Center in New York City.

The 30-year-old actor is joined by a celebrity cast, including Ana Gasteyer and Dan Fogler, in the revival of the 1998 musical based on the life of Tony Award winner William Finn.

After struggling composer Gordon Michael Schwinn, played by Jonathan, collapses at the piano, he is diagnosed with a brain tumor and is forced to come to terms with his creative ambitions and the people in his life: an overbearing mother, played by Ana, a ruthless kiddie-show host, played by Dan, and a boyfriend who’d “rather be sailing,” played by Aaron Lazar.
