Kevin Bacon to perform on stage in 'Rear Window' this fall

NEW YORK (AP) — Kevin Bacon will star in a stage adaptation of the story that inspired Alfred Hitchcock's 1954 classic film "Rear Window."

Hartford Stage in Connecticut said Tuesday that the movie star will headline the haunting tale of a man in a wheelchair who witnesses a possible murder. It's been adapted for the stage by Keith Reddin and will run from Oct. 22-Nov. 15.

It will be directed by Hartford Stage Artistic Director Darko Tresnjak, who nurtured the Broadway hit "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" also at Hartford Stage.
