Fans of American Horror Story might still be shaking their fist in the air and writing letters to Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk begging them to bring Zachary Quinto back to the anthology series. However, they shouldn’t hold their breath. Quinto has made a commitment to do more theater. Now Quinto is getting ready for the open of his new off-Broadway play, Smokefall. This coming off of a successful run on Broadway in the 2013 revival of The Glass Menagerie.

Recently, Zachary Quinto spoke to Playbill about the big differences between working on a film/TV series to working on play:

"It is a little more fragmented and disjointed. It relies on the contributions of many other collaborators after the actor has made their contribution. Theatre, in a way, is the opposite. The contributions from the creative team and all of that collaboration happens in process, leading up to the opening. Then from that point, it becomes the responsibility of the actors to maintain that, to honor those contributions and share the experience with the audience. There's a magic and level of creative expression in that form."

Quinto went on to discuss the devotion that stage acting takes.

"You're showing up at the same time and at the same place; you're standing in the same spot; you're saying the same things. It's evolved from a spiritual practice. There's something really meaningful in that."

You can see Zachary Quinto himself in Smokefall opening on Feb. 22 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. For tickets and additional information be sure to visitwww.mcctheater.org.
