NEW YORK -- 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.
Rickman, who plays professor Severus Snape in all eight of the Potter films, 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.
