Leighton Meester will make her Broadway debut in the new production of the play “Of Mice and Men“!
The “Gossip Girl” star will join James Franco and Chris O’Dowd in the play about “migrant field workers who seek new prospects of success and the American dream during the Great Depression“, EW announces.
Leighton will play Curley‘s wife, a beauty-obsessed woman who tempts Franco and O’Dowd‘s characters and also stirs up the wrath of her husband.
This is great news for the newly-engaged actress/singer.
The show will kick-off previews on March 19, with the official opening night set for April 16.
But you’ve got to move quickly and get tickets if you want to see the play. Shows are limited to July 27.
Do you think Leighton Meester will do a good job on Broadway?
