Baldwin returning to Broadway in 'Orphans'
Posted June 27, 2012
Alec Baldwin is heading back to Broadway next spring - as a wealthy but shady gentleman.
The 30 Rock actor will appear, under Daniel Sullivan's direction, in a new production of Lyle Kessler's 1983 play Orphans, which won praise off-Broadway after transferring from Chicago's celebrated Steppenwolf Theater Company in 1985.
Baldwin will play Harold, who is kidnapped by one of two orphaned brothers and becomes a father figure to the troubled young men.
In a statement, Baldwin said, "I have dreamed, for a long time, of doing this play with this director." Sullivan has a busy season ahead: He'll also direct Al Pacino and Bobby Cannavale in a revival of Glengarry Glen Ross.
Baldwin was last seen on Broadway in a 2004 revival of Twentieth Century and has since appeared on stage in productions of Equus and Entertaining Mr. Sloane.
