Another member of the "Harry Potter" franchise is returning to Broadway. This time it's Alan Rickman.
Rickman, who won a Tony Award in the 2002 production of Noel Coward's "Private Lives," will star in the world premiere of Theresa Rebeck's new play "Seminar" this fall.
The production will open at a Shubert theater to be announced soon.
Rickman, who plays professor Severus Snape in the "Potter" franchise, will portray a literary legend who teaches a private seminar for four young awe-struck writers. The play will be directed by Sam Gold.
Rebeck's other plays include "Mauritius" and "The Understudy."
Rickman follows "Potter" co-star Daniel Radcliffe to Broadway, where the younger man is belting out show tunes in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."
Radcliffe made his Broadway debut in a revival of "Equus." He played the titular character in the Harry Potter films.
