PlayBlog   Jonathan Groff Talks About Staying in Shape for Off-Broadway's The Submission (Video) Tony Award nominee Jonathan Groff will make his way back to the New York stage when Jeff Talbott's The Submission debuts in its world-premiere production Off-Broadway, beginning Sept. 8.


In The Submission, Groff plays Danny Larsen, a playwright who writes a play under the female pen name Shaleeha G’ntamobi. When his drama about an African-American family is accepted into the nation's preeminent theatre festival, he is faced with a multitude of difficult decisions.

Here, the show's star talks about the need to stay in shape when having to perform eight shows a week, as well as his encounter with P90X. Also, in preparation for The Submission, which officially opens at the Lucille Lortel Theatre Sept. 27, Groff told Playbill.com that he rides his bike to rehearsal. In Playbill's Brief Encounter with Groff, he said, "I rode my bike here today to rehearsal. I just love the city. I love the theatre community here. I love the Off-Broadway community here, and I am so pumped to be doing this play."
