Matthew Broderick may star in the Broadway-bound production of playwright, comedienne and screenwriter, Elaine (Power Plays) May's Taller Than a Dwarf, reports Theatrical Index. Dwarf is due on Broadway in early 2000.

May's Power Plays co-hort, Alan Arkin, will direct the comedy, with Tony Walton designing sets.

Broderick was seen last season in the National Actors Theatre staging of the thriller Night Must Fall. Other credits include How to Succeed..., for which he won a Tony.

According to producer Julian Schlossberg, Taller Than a Dwarf is "an average couple during the millennium learning the new rules of the American dream."

Arkin is best known for his film work (Catch 22, Simon) but his theatre credits include directing The Soft Touch in Boston in 1975 and Jules Feiffer's The White House Murder Case Off Broadway in 1970, as well as the original Sunshine Boys and Little Murders. May's plays include Adaptation, Not Enough Rope and Mr. Gogol And Mr. Preen.
