It was 2006 when we last saw Alec Baldwin on the New York stage in the Off-Broadway production of Entertaining Mr. Sloane. Now, with 30 Rock behind him, he finally returns, and as a gangster no less, in the Broadway revival of Lyle Kessler’s 1983 drama, Orphans. The story concerns two orphaned brothers living in squalor in a rundown house in North Philadelphia. Treat (Ben Foster) is a violent thug and Phillip (Tom Sturridge) is the dopey younger sibling whom he keeps imprisoned in their house. But, when Treat kidnaps Harold (Baldwin), a notorious gangster, the boys think they might have found themselves a new parent. Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (The Columnist, Proof) directs.
