Paul Rudd has missed Broadway. It’s been a while. In recent times he’s been more known for his comic displays on shows such as “Parks and Recreation.” But it’s just not been the same for the man who loved theater. It’s been a long six years but now Rudd is finally returning. The last time Rudd appeared on Broadway was back in 2006 when he starred alongside Julia Roberts in “Three Days of Rain.” His first Broadway play was Alfred Uhry’s “The Last Night of Ballyhoo.”
Well, within the next few weeks, Rudd will be coming home. With the Broadway play “Grace” that opens on October 4, Rudd will be playing an Evangelical Christian who unravels before his audience. He says he was drawn to the character as it’s very different for him. He sees it as “bold and fresh and something [he] hadn’t seen before.”
Playing alongside Rudd is Edward Asner, who has won 7 Emmy Awards.
