Celebrity News: American actor Denzel Washington will return to Broadway theaters next spring with the film “The Iceman Cometh”, which will be produced by Scott Rudin.

Washington will be in the shoes of Hickey, a character who has played in the past other veteran actors like Kevin Spacey, James Earl Jones or Jason Robards.

“I’m happy to return to Broadway with this great work and do it working with George Wolfe,” the Hollywood star told a New York newspaper.

Playwright Eugene O’Neill’s will be directed by five Tony Award winners Tony George Wolfe and will premiere on March 22, 2018, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater in Manhattan. In 2010 he starred in “Fences”, a role for which he won a Tony Award and later also took the film.

Washington will be in the shoes of Hickey, a character who has played in the past other veteran actors like Kevin Spacey, James Earl Jones or Jason Robards.

The 62-year-old actor made his stage debut in the 1970s with O’Neill’s “Emperor Jones,” as a student at Fordham University.

The last time Washington got on the set of New York was in 2014, with “A Raisin in the Sun” by Lorraine Hansberry, the first black author who managed to release on Broadway

The most recent adaptation of O’Neill’s work was set in 1999 and featured Kevin Spacey in the role of “Hickey.”

“The Iceman Cometh” will begin functions beginning March 22, 2018, before the opening of the Jacobs Theater.
