The Producers actor is set to star in the new production of A.R. Gurney's 1995 comedy, which features on a couple going through a midlife crisis and the adopted dog that changes their lives.

Broderick will star alongside fellow Tony winners Julie White and Annaleigh Ashford in the show, which is due to open in October (15).

Ironically, Broderick's wife Sarah Jessica Parker starred in the original 1995 off-Broadway production of Sylvia, a role which earned her a Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Actress in a Play.
