Actress Rosie Perez is set to make a return to the Broadway stage in comedian Larry David's new play, Fish in the Dark.

The Do the Right Thing star last appeared on the Great White Way in 2007's The Ritz, and now she will head back in the highly-anticipated production which marks David's Broadway acting debut.

Joining the Seinfeld creator and Perez on stage are theatre veterans Jayne Houdyshell and Jerry Adler, and actors Jonny Orsini and Jake Cannavale, the son of Tony Award nominee Bobby Cannavale.

Fish in the Dark, which is described as a "comedy about a death in the family", will have its opening night at the Cort Theatre on 5 March (15).
