I think with him having a contract with the warner brothers his career is sorted for life. Although he's great doing musicals, I think it's films he's going to do for the rest of his life. But Either way I love him the same!
He's not "under contract" to Warner Brothers (CStC and The Lorax were Universal films); through his production company he has a "first refusal" deal with Warner, which means they get the first chance to pick up any movie he produces, but they are also free to say "no thanks".
The real difficulty is his work schedule. To do a regular Broadway play, he would have to clear his schedule for an unknown period of time - a play might run for one week or two years. If the play was a hit, he would have to pass up on any more-lucrative movie deals that came along. It's more likely that he might agree to do a limited-run play in Los Angeles, as V did with Rent. That would only require blocking out a few weeks - some rehearsals, then several performances, and he's done.
He could do a Broadway musical/play for only a few weeks...Darren Criss played Finch in How To Succeed for only two weeks.
