Alec Baldwin returning to Broadway

2012-06-28 21:04
Los Angeles - 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.

In a statement, Alec said: "I have dreamed, for a long time, of doing this play with this director. It's an honour to work with Dan Sullivan in Lyle Kessler's Orphans."

The production - which had an off-Broadway run in at the Westside Arts Theatre 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 Theatre 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.

He previously starred in off-Broadway production Entertaining Mr. Sloane by Joe Orton in 2006.

News of the role comes after Alec was involved in off-stage drama earlier this month when he was accused of assaulting a photographer - who later filed a complaint against him.
