07/01/2009 AT 07:00 AM EDT
The actor, who announced his departure from the ABC hit last month, is set to star in a revival of playwright Ken Ludwig's 1989 farce, Lend Me a Tenor, likely to open on the Great White Way in February 2010, reports Variety.
The production will be further distinguished in that its director will be a first timer, actor Stanley Tucci (The Devil Wears Prada and the upcoming Julie & Julia, also starring Meryl Streep).
Lend Me a Tenor involves a catastrophic production of the opera Otello. The role Knight, 36, will play, Max, was originated on Broadway by future Alias star Victor Garber, who earned a Tony nomination for it.
On Tuesday came the announcement of another star heading to Broadway: Jude Law in Hamlet.
