Heading to Broadway...

In exciting news it's been announced that Josh will be heading to Broadway in September 2016.

Josh will star in the Broadway premiere of “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812,” a musical adaptation of a 70-page section of Tolstoy’s masterwork, “War and Peace.” The show is scheduled to arrive on Broadway with Josh in September.

For more details click here for an artilce from the New York Times.

Here's a clip that explains a bit of the story, although I believe that for the Broadway production they will be adapting it to a stage format.
