Zach Braff is heading to Broadway.

The former Scrubs star is set to make his debut on the Great White Way in a musical adaptation of popular Woody Allen comedy "Bullets Over Broadway."

Braff will star as playwright David Shayne, who obtains funding for a production from a mobster and is then pushed into casting the mobster's talent-lacking girlfriend in his production.

The role was originated by John Cusack in the 1994 film of the same name, which he starred opposite Jennifer Tilly.

"It's thrilling. I keep waking up expecting it to be a dream," Braff told the Associated Press on Thursday.

The musical is set to open at the St. James Theater on March 11, 2014. Susan Stroman will direct.

Braff worked with Allen two decades ago, starring as the actor/director's son in "Manhattan Murder Mystery."
