MacLachlan makes his Broadway debut with the play after a turn on the London stage last year opposite Woody Harrelson (The Rainmaker) in On an Average Day at the Comedy Theatre. The actor is known for his big and small screen work in "Sex and the City," "Blue Velvet," "Twin Peaks," "Showgirls," and the 2000 update of "Hamlet" with Ethan Hawke.
The Roundabout Theatre Company staging, directed by David Jones, stars MacLachlan and Patrick Stewart with Aiden Gillen. The drama began previews at the American Airlines Theatre Oct. 24 towards a Nov. 9 opening. The limited engagement is slated through Jan. 4, 2004.
The work, which explores the changing relationship between two brothers when a vagabond enters their lives, was originally staged on Broadway in 1961 at the Lyceum Theatre starring Alan Bates.
