New York: Former ‘Grey`s Anatomy’ star TR Knight has prescribed a return to Broadway for himself.

It was announced Thursday that Knight, who played Dr George O`Malley on ABC`s medical drama, will star opposite Patrick Stewart in David Mamet`s ‘A Life in the Theatre.’ Rehearsals are set to begin in August.

Knight will play the role of John, a relative newcomer to acting who`s counselled by a veteran performer. Stewart, starring as the older actor, last appeared on Broadway in 2008 in "Macbeth" and received a Tony Award nomination.

‘A Life in the Theatre’ premiered in 1977 in Chicago and opened off-Broadway that year. Previews for the new production with Knight and Stewart are scheduled to begin in September.
