Live Theater Gets an Infusion of Marvel Heroism with Chris Evans Set to Make His Broadway Debut


Captain America himself is headed to the Great White Way, as Chris Evans is set to make his Broadway debut in March 2018. The show is Lobby Hero, which premiered Off-Broadway in 2001. It follows a security guard, his supervisor, and a couple of cops in the foyer of a Manhattan apartment building in the middle of the night. It was written by Kenneth Lonergan, aka the most recent Original Screenplay Oscar winner, for Manchester by the Sea.

Michael Cera will also be appearing in the production. There is no word yet on whether or not there will be a new scene that recreates Scott Pilgrim’s fight against Lucas Lee, but if I know Broadway fans, then I am sure they will be clamoring for it.
