Denzel will make his Broadway return this spring in Eugene O’Neill’s “The Iceman Cometh,” a revival production under director George C. Wolfe and producer Scott Rudin.

The last Broadway revival of O’Neill’s 1946 play was the 1999 staging that starred Kevin Spacey as Hickey, the down-on-his-luck salesman that Washington will portray in the new production. More recently, Nathan Lane played Hickey in a revival that originated in Chicago and had a run at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.

Washington’s last two Broadway appearances, in “Fences” in 2010 and “A Raisin in the Sun” in 2014, were among the top-earning plays of their respective seasons, according to Variety. The actor earned a Tony for “Fences” and reprised his role in the 2016 movie adaptation.
