Alec Baldwin is Returning to Broadway
Alec Baldwin is returning to Broadway in a new production of Orphans.
The 30 Rock star will star as Harold - a wealthy but shady gentleman, who becomes a father figure to two orphaned brothers after one of the siblings kidnaps him - in the latest version of the Lyle Kessler's 1983 play, which will be directed by Daniel Sullivan.
"I have dreamed, for a long time, of doing this play with this director. It's an honor to work with Dan Sullivan in Lyle Kessler's Orphans," he said in a statement.
The production - which had an off-Broadway run in at the Westside Arts Theater in Manhattan in 1985 and was later turned into a movie starring Albert Finney and Matthew Modine in 1987 - will begin next spring at the Shubert Theater in New York City.
Alec, 54, last appeared on Broadway in 2004 when he starred in a revival of comedy play Twentieth Century alongside Anne Hench and he previously starred in off-Broadway production Entertaining Mr. Sloane by Joe Orton in 2006.
