The Marvel star is set to make his Broadway debut in Pulitzer Prize winner Ayad Akhtar’s new play McNeal, Robert Downey Jr.

According to the official synopsis, it’s the story of a talented writer who “struggles with his estranged son, a new novel, old accounts and a sick obsession with artificial intelligence.”

Ayad Akhtar’s “impressive and highly intelligent” play will take the stage at New York’s Lincoln Center Theater for limited performances, where Steve Carell also made his Broadway debut a few days ago with an adaptation of “Uncle Vanya,” according to the Guardian.

Directed by Tony Award-winner Bartlett Sher, performances will begin on September 30, with the play closing two months later, Variety reports.

The famous actor shared the news with his 113.3 million fans in a post on Instagram, writing among other things: “I knew I wanted to be in Ayad’s new play before I finished reading it and then when I found out that Bart would be taking over staged at the Beaumont Theater the deal was sealed.”

The Oscar-winning actor’s last attempt at the stage was in 1983 in the off-Broadway production of “American Passion” opposite Jane Krakowski at the Joyce Theater in Manhattan, which was closed immediately after the premiere.
