"It's a joy to be back on Broadway," Matthew told ET. "This is my home. This is where I kind of cut my teeth as a young man."
Matthew began his career with Broadway productions such as Footloose, The Rocky Horror Show and Hairspray before landing his role as Will Schuester on Glee. Likewise, Kelsey Grammer made his Broadway debut in 1981 as Lennox in Macbeth before going to work as Dr. Frasier Crane on Cheers in 1982.
While the project is clearly familiar ground for the two leads of the play, for lead producer Harvey Weinstein, the production is a departure from his usual day job as film mogul.
"My four daughters agree that the only movie that they're unanimous on that I made was Finding Neverland," Harvey told ET. "That was a good inspiration for my first lead producer role on Broadway."
Harvey brought the story of Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie and the family who inspired him to the screen in 2004, along with Johnny Depp and Dustin Hoffman as the leads.
"Hook is actually an extension of the other character I play -- Frohman the American producer who motivated J.M. Barrie," Kelsey said. "I morph into Hook in a kind of natural way, which I think people really enjoy."
