Al Pacino will star in Lyle Kessler's Orphans on Broadway this spring, according to The New York Post.
Orphans follows the plight of two brothers: the emotionally volatile Treat and the sweetly naive Phillip, who were orphaned at an early age. Living hand to mouth in Philadelphia the city of "brotherly love", Treat supports them both by thieving on a daily basis. This tentative existence is interrupted by Harold Pacino, a middle-aged businessman, whom they kidnap.
The play became popular after a highly successful mounting at Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre in the mid-1980s. It has been seen all over the world but has never played on Broadway before.
