Alec Baldwin back to Broadway

Will star in Lyle Kessler's 'Orphans'

Alec Baldwin will return to Broadway next spring in Lyle Kessler’s “Orphans,” directed by Daniel Sullivan and produced by Frederick Zollo and Robert Cole. It’s the first Broadway staging of the play.

“I have dreamed for a long time of doing this play with this director,” Baldwin said Wednesday.

The play follows two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit North Philadelphia row house. Brother Treat kidnaps a rich older man, Harold, to be played by Baldwin, who becomes a father figure. Treat and younger brother Phillip have yet to be cast.

Play will run at the Shubert Theater, date to be announced.

Baldwin’s other stage credits include the Roundabout Theatre Company’s 2006 production of Joe Orton’s “Entertaining Mr. Sloane,” “Loot,” “Serious Money,” “Prelude to a Kiss,” “A Street Car Named Desire,” “Macbeth” and “The Twentieth Century.”
