Out actor Zachary Quinto is set to make his Broadway debut in September, the BBC reports.

The "Star Trek" actor plays the leading role as the narrator Tom in Tennessee Williams’ classic play, "The Glass Menagerie." Quinto, who has been praised for playing Dr. Tredson/Bloody Face in "American Horror Story: Asylum," shares the stage with two-time Tony Award-winner Cherry Jones, who plays his mother Amanda Wingfield.

The play first opened at Cambridge’s American Repertory Theater and received rave reviews. The New York Times’ Ben Brantley praised the play and said that Quinto was "the finest Tom I’ve ever seen, a defensive romantic, sardonically in love with his own lush powers of description. You truly feel that he is shaping this play as we watch, and we wince and marvel in those moments when he no longer seems in control, when reality rears its reproachful head."
