Alec Baldwin to appear on Broadway in 'Orphans'

NEW YORK (AP) — Alec Baldwin will be kidnapped on Broadway next spring.

Producers said Wednesday that the "30 Rock" star will appear in Lyle Kessler's "Orphans" in spring of 2013. Daniel Sullivan will direct.

The play, which premiered in 1983, tells the story of two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit Philadelphia row house who decide to kidnap a wealthy man.

It will play at a Shubert-owned theatre to be announced. The rest of the cast and exact dates will be revealed later.

Balwin was last on Broadway in "Twentieth Century" in 2004. Before that, he played Stanley Kowalski in "A Streetcar Named Desire" in 1992.

He has appeared in over 40 films, including "Working Girl," ''The Hunt for Red October," ''Glengarry Glen Ross," ''Ghosts of Mississippi," ''The Aviator" and "The Departed."
