Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra Jonas have joined the roster of producers for the Broadway production of “Chicken & Biscuits,” the play announced Wednesday.
Jonas, a member of pop band the Jonas Brothers, has a long history with Broadway, having appeared in several child roles and most recently in the 2011 revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” This play marks the Broadway producing debut for Jonas and wife Chopra Jonas, an actor and model.
“Broadway has always had a special place in my heart, it helped launch my career. And after the last year and a half, Broadway is exactly what we need in this world,” Jonas said.
The new comedy, which is currently in previews at Circle in the Square, is written by Douglas Lyons and directed by Zhailon Levingston. The producing team is led by Pamela Ross, Hunter Arnold and E. Clayton Cornelious. Opening night is set for Oct. 10.
