NEW YORK (AP) — Matthew Morrison is giving himself the hook on Broadway.
The former “Glee” star will take his final bow Jan. 24 in “Finding Neverland,” a new musical about the origin of the Peter Pan story. There was no word on who will replace him.
Morrison plays J.M. Barrie, the “Peter Pan” author, in the adaptation from the 2004 whimsical film of the same name about a widow whose four young sons inspired Barrie to write the children’s classic.
Morrison had previously starred on Broadway in “Hairspray,” ”South Pacific” and “The Light in the Piazza,” for which he was nominated for a 2005 Tony Award. He played choir director Will Schuester on “Glee” for six seasons.
