Efron has since starred in a string of hit romantic comedies and dramas, but admits he 'can't wait' to return to the stage, reports  "Without a doubt, I'd love to do Broadway. I actually can't wait to get back to musical theatre," he told The Advocate.

"There's a part of me that wishes I could go do it right now, but there's also a part of me that knows I need to tackle other types of acting opportunities first. I want to be a well-rounded, versatile performer. Until I master other things, it would be hard for me to get back to musical theatre.

"But that will always be my home base and where I feel the most free, and it's something I will definitely do again, even if it's just for pleasure and personal fulfilment," he added.
