Alec Baldwin is returning to Broadway in a new production of Orphans
. The 30 Rock
star will play 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.
Alec said in a statement: "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
The production - which had an off-Broadway run 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 the comedy Twentieth Century
alongside Anne Heche.
