How many StarWagons can fit on the Great White Way? Lyle Kessler’s play Orphans has added Shia LaBeouf to its cast in what will be the actor’s first Broadway role. Alec Baldwin had already been cast in the story of two brothers living in a Philadelphia row house. LaBeouf will play Treat, the older of the pair; Baldwin will play the rich man Treat kidnaps to help support his damaged younger sibling. Previews on the revival begin March 19 at the Schoenfeld ahead of an April 7 opening. The play opened in 1983 in LA and was mounted in London among other places, but this will mark its first time on Broadway. A 1987 feature film starred Matthew Modine as Treat. The LaBeouf casting is the latest from Broadway producers looking to add Hollywood star power to their marquees, joining the likes of Al Pacino (Glengarry Glen Ross) and Scarlett Johansson (Cat On A Hot Tin Roof).
