, 48, in a new production of Cabaret
. Roundabout Theatre Company confirmed on Wednesday that the Brokeback Mountain
star has signed on for a 24-week run and previews will begin on March 21, 2014 at the Kit Kat Klub at Studio 54 on Broadway in New York. Skyfall
director Sam Mendes will helm the production for the second time after originally reviving the show in 1993, which Alan also starred in.
He said in a statement: "I'm
delighted to be stepping back into the Kit Kat Klub one more time, and to be having the opportunity to re-explore and re-discover this extraordinary musical alongside two equally extraordinary performers." The show will begin its official run on April 24.
