Darren Criss is Playing Zac Efron's '17 Again' Role in a Musical!

Darren Criss is set to play Zac Efron‘s role in an upcoming reading of a 17 Again musical.

The reading will take place on March 6 and unfortunately it is closed to the public. It is being put on by Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures in hopes of creating new works for first class productions, professional and regional tours, and amateur licensing.

While Darren is starring in the reading, this does not mean he will definitely star in the show if it hits Broadway, though this does sometimes happen!

17 Again is about a guy whose life didn’t quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of Darren Criss starring in a 17 Again musical?

Kristin Chenoweth's Return to Broadway Is Here - New Photos!

Kristin Chenoweth sits on her co-star Andy Karl‘s back while he does some push-ups in this new photo from their Broadway revival of On the Twentieth Century.

The musical comedy takes place on a luxury train and stars Peter Gallagher as the bankrupt theater producer Oscar Jaffee, who embarks on a madcap mission to cajole glamorous Hollywood starlet Lily Garland (Chenoweth) into playing the lead in his new, non-existent epic drama. But is the train ride long enough to reignite the spark between these former lovers, create a play from scratch, and find the money to get it all the way to Broadway?

On the Twentieth Century, which is currently playing in previews, will have it’s official opening night on March 12 and run until July 5. This is Kristin‘s first time back on Broadway since her show Promises, Promises closed just over four years ago!

Sienna Miller Has Had Nightmares About Starring in 'Cabaret'

Sienna Miller is presented with a giant bouquet of flowers during her curtain call for her opening night performance in Cabaret on Tuesday (February 17) at Studio 54 in New York City.

The 33-year-old actress took over the role from Emma Stone and will play the part of Sally Bowles for the next six weeks.

Sienna appeared on Good Morning America the day before and talked about the nightmares she has had about not being sexy enough for the show.

“It’s a really saucy part and there are gorgeous costumes and in one of the scenes I do this dance… in this sexy black cap, but I had this dream that I did the first show and my boyfriend [Tom Sturridge] came backstage and said it was really underwhelming,” Sienna said. “He was like, ‘You’ve got to pick it up.’ [Co-star] Alan Cumming wouldn’t look me in the eye… and I woke up in [a panic].”
