'Chuck' and 'Smash' stars head to Broadway


A couple of stars from TV's "Chuck" and "Smash" will soon be dating on Broadway.

Producers said Monday that Zachary Levi and Krysta Rodriguez will headline the new romantic musical comedy "First Date" by "Gossip Girl" writer Austin Winsberg.

The music and lyrics are by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner.

"First Date" centers on a successful young investment banker who meets a serial-dater at a local bistro. A chorus of diners become various characters -- parents, clergy and old lovers.

The show will be seen at The Longacre Theatre beginning July 9.

Levi follows fellow "Chuck" alum Yvonne Strahovski to Broadway. She made a strong impression in the Lincoln Center Theater revival of Clifford Odets' "Golden Boy."

Rodriguez was last on Broadway in "The Addams Family."
