London (ANI): Robin Williams is in talks to return to the Broadway stage to star in Rajiv Joseph's acclaimed play Bengal Tiger At The Baghdad Zoo. The New York Times reports that producers Robyn Goodman and Kevin McCollum are close to concluding a deal with the funnyman, reports the Daily Express.
The play, set around the Iraq War, is scheduled to open in New York next spring. Bengal Tiger won huge acclaim when it debuted at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City, California in May, 2009.
It most recently played the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles earlier this year. Williams is slated to take over from Kevin Tighe in the title role of the Tiger when the play transfers to New York.
