NEW YORK (AP) — Max Crumm, who played Danny Zuko in the latest edition of "Grease" on Broadway, will next tackle the longest-running musical in the world.

Crumm will play the lead male role in "The Fantasticks" starting July 8 at the Snapple Theater Center, an off-Broadway complex in the heart of Times Square.

The mock version of "Romeo and Juliet" concerns a young girl and boy secretly brought together by their fathers and an assortment of odd characters.

Crumm along with Laura Osnes won roles in 2007's "Grease" on the NBC reality series, "Grease: You're The One That I Want." He has since been off-Broadway in "Disaster!" and "F------ Up Everything."
