Rita Wilson is set to make a return to Broadway in comedian Larry David's new play, Fish in the Dark.

The actress/singer last appeared on the Great White Way in 2006 for a starring role in long-running musical Chicago, and now she's heading back for the Curb Your Enthusiasm writer's debut play.

Wilson joins a cast including David, Rosie Perez and Royal Pains' Ben Shenkman in the production, a comedy about a death in the family.

Fish in the Dark will have its opening night at the Cort Theatre on 5 March (15).
