Al Pacino Returns to Broadway - Dates to be Confirmed
Following his turn in 2015's China Doll, Al Pacino will take to the Broadway stage once again in new play God Looked Away. Written by Dotson Rader Williams, this drama, which arrives in New York following an LA workshop, focuses on the later years of playwright Tennessee Williams. A writer of extraordinary talents, Williams created countless masterpieces - Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and A Streetcar Named Desire chief among them - but also battled many personal demons throughout his life, including drug addiction and depression.
Starring alongside Pacino in this production is Judith Light, the two-time Tony-winning actress (Other Desert Cities, Other Assembled Parties) who can currently be seen on Amazon's acclaimed drama Transparent. The director is Robert Allan Ackerman.
Pacino: A Stage History
An actor of unrivalled magnetic intensity, Pacino may be considered one of the screen's greatest figures, with iconic roles in Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface and The Godfather trilogy under his belt to name just a few, but theatre has always been his first love.
After moving to New York as a teenager, Pacino picked up numerous roles in small Off-Broadway productions, before making his Broadway debut in Does a Tiger Wear A Necktie?, which earned him his first Tony. Since then Pacino has returned to the New York stage again and again, appearing in revivals of works by Shakespeare and Wilde, alongside original plays like David Mamet's American Buffalo and China Doll.
