NEW YORK (AP) — Jessica Lange will return to Broadway next spring in a production of “Long Day’s Journey Into Night,” playing the same role she did 15 years ago in London.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said Tuesday that the Oscar- and Emmy-winner will join Gabriel Byrne in a revival of Eugene O’Neill’s play in March. Jonathan Kent will direct the production at the American Airlines Theatre.

Lange previously played the role of Mary Tyrone in a 2000 production of O’Neill’s familial drama in London, receiving an Olivier Award nomination for her performance as the morphine-addicted mother.

The “American Horror Story” star made her Broadway debut in a 1992 production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” and returned to the stage in the 2005 revival of “The Glass Menagerie.”
