Two-time Tony nominee Patrick Wilson may be heading back to the Great White Way in an as-yet unnamed musical. Wilson, who hasn’t appeared in a Broadway musical since 2002, told the Examiner.com that he plans to bust out some jazz hands in the spring of 2014.
“I actually am going to do something in the spring for a very short while,” Wilson said, when asked about a return to Broadway. “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.”
Wilson received Tony nominations for his leading roles in The Full Monty and Oklahoma!. He also appeared on Broadway in Fascinating Rhythm, Barefoot in the Park and All My Sons and off-Broadway in Bright Lights, Big City. Wilson starred as Raoul in the big screen adaptation of Phantom of the Opera and received an Emmy nomination for his performance as Joe Pitt in the TV adaptation of Angels in America. His other notable screen credits include Little Children, Insidious, Young Adult, The Conjuring, Watchmen, Girls and A Gifted Man.
What musical could Wilson be performing? Could he be Cliff opposite Michelle Williams in Cabaret? One of the stars of Les Miserables? Or maybe Sky Masterson in Jack O’Brien’s one-night-only Guys and Dolls? Only time will tell.
