EVANSTON, Ill. --- Northwestern University alumnus Zach Braff returned to campus May 6 to host an actors' workshop for current theatre students. More than 100 undergraduates packed the Mussetter-Struble Theater to watch fellow classmates perform scenes from Braff's 2011 play "All New People."

Braff coached a group of 10 actors and actresses selected to participate in the workshop, providing feedback on their performances.

A frequent visitor to Evanston, Braff came back this time as Northwestern's 2013 Hope Abelson Artist-in-Residence.

The famed actor, writer and director known for his work on the TV series "Scrubs" and the movie "Garden State" graduated from the School of Communication in 1997.
