Jeremy Irons will return to Broadway for the first time in 25 years, co-starring with Joan Allen in a new play called "Impressionism."
The play by Michael Jacobs opens in spring 2009 at a theater to be announced.
Irons was last on Broadway in 1984 in Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing," for which he won a Tony. Allen received a Tony for her performance in Lanford Wilson's "Burn This" in 1988. She also appeared on Broadway in "The Heidi Chronicles" by Wendy Wasserstein.
"Impressionism," directed by Jack O'Brien, tells the story of the relationship between a photojournalist and a New York gallery owner.
Jacobs, a producer of the movie "Quiz Show," has been involved in more than a dozen TV series including "Boy Meets World" and "Charles in Charge." His play "Cheaters" had a short run on Broadway in 1978.
