Jane Fonda will return to Broadway for the first time in 46 years when she takes on a starring role in Moises Kaufman's '33 Variations'.
The movie great will play a modern-day musicologist attempting to unravel the mysteries of composer Beethoven's inspirations.
Fonda says: "I can't wait to get back on stage... in this role that I understand so well."
Thrilled Kaufman adds: "I am delighted to be working with one of America's greatest actresses, a performer of such insight, intellect and heart."
Fonda's last appearance on Broadway was in the 1963 drama 'Strange Interlude'.
The play will open in New York this winter.
