Williams plays the narrating title character in what's billed as a "ferocious comedy that follows the intertwined lives of a tiger, two American marines and an Iraqi gardener as they roam the streets of Baghdad in search of friendship, redemption and a toilet seat made of gold."
Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo is produced on Broadway by Robyn Goodman, Kevin McCollum, Jeffrey Seller and Center Theatre Group. The play was a finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize.
Additional casting will be announced.
