Denzel Washington will return to Broadway this spring in The Iceman Cometh, The Post has learned.
A 14-week run of Eugene O’Neill’s drama, to be directed by five-time Tony winner George C. Wolfe, is set to start March 22 at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.
“I’m very excited to come back to Broadway in this great play and to be working on it with George Wolfe,” Washington told The Post.
Scott Rudin, fresh off a home run with Bette Midler in Hello, Dolly! is producing.
Washington will play Hickey, a charismatic traveling salesman with a secret who shows up at a Greenwich Village saloon to buy the drunken regulars one last round.
