Producers said Tuesday that Rickman will play his final performance on April 1 and Goldblum starts an eight-week stint in Rickman's old role on April 3.
In Theresa Rebeck's play about the soul-torturing world of authors, four budding writers are taught about life by a crass, pugnacious novelist-turned-tutor.
Goldblum last appeared on Broadway in "The Pillowman" in 2005. He recently starred in two productions for London's Old Vic: "Speed-the-Plow" in 2008 and "The Prisoner of Second Avenue" in 2010, both opposite Kevin Spacey.
Rickman, who has received rave reviews for his latest theatrical role - as an international literary great-turned-teacher, will leave the show after a final performance on 1 April. The Brit has led the cast since the drama opened last year.
Goldblum will take over from 3 April for an eight-week engagement. He last appeared on Broadway in The Pillowman in 2005, according to BroadwayWorld.com.
Goldblum will take over the role for eight weeks, starting April 3. He unofficially revealed his involvement with the show on the February 13 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and a press release today confirmed the announcement. Goldblum returns to Broadway after having previously appeared in Martin McDonagh’s The Pillowman in 2006, as well as London productions of Speed-the-Plow and The Prisoner of Second Avenue, opposite Kevin Spacey.
