The Oscar winner has signed on to star in a new Dotson Rader play, titled When God Looked Away, according to multiple reports.

The drama is adapted from Rader's 1985 biography of the A Streetcar Named Desire writer, and Pacino will reportedly share the stage with Tony Award winner Judith Light, who will portray a friend of Williams.

A workshop for When God Looked Away is slated to take place in Los Angeles this week (begs27Jun16), and stage and screen director Robert Allan Ackerman has been tapped to direct the production.

Pacino last appeared on the Great White Way in David Mamet's China Doll, which ended a nearly two-month-run in January (16).

The play had a rough start following a series of delays as producers scrambled to make last-minute changes, and the production was mauled by critics.

However, Pacino's starring role helped defy expectations and the show broke through the million dollar weekly takings barrier the week after America's Thanksgiving holiday in November (15), while many of Broadway's top shows suffered a slump, according to Forbes.
