He'll co-star with Alec Baldwin in Lyle Kessler's 1983 drama about two troubled brothers who kidnap a rich older man (Baldwin). Labeouf will play the elder brother, while the younger has yet to be cast.
"Orphans" had a successful run in the mid-80s in Los Angeles, Chicago, London and Off Broadway. It also inspired a 1987 film starring Albert Finney and Matthew Modine. This production will mark the show's Broadway debut.
Previews begin March 19 at the Schoenfeld Theater, with an official opening night set for April 7. The Schoenfeld is currently home to a revival of David Mamet's "Glengarry Glen Ross," starring Al Pacino and directed by Daniel Sullivan, who will also direct "Orphans." »
