07 Jul 2012
Jonathan Groff, known for his performances in Spring Awakening and Fox's "Glee," will return to television next month in the second season of "Boss" on Starz. In anticipation of a weekly dose of Groff, Playbill.com has compiled favorite moments from the Tony nominee — on and off the stage.
Groff, who received a Tony nomination for his performance as radical teenager Melchior Gabor in Spring Awakening, was also seen on Broadway in In My Life. He most recently appeared on the New York stage in The Submission and plays the character of Jesse St. James on "Glee."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
