What can you do after swearing-off blockbusters? Work on Broadway, for one.

Shia LaBeouf will make his Broadway debut opposite Alec Baldwin this spring in "Orphans," Lyle Kessler’s 1983 drama about two brothers who kidnap a mobster.

The 26-year-old actor, known for the "Transformers" movies, will play Treat, an orphaned thief who lives with his mentally damaged brother Phillip (a role not yet cast).

When Treat kidnaps Harold (Baldwin), he and Phillip realize that they “may have found the father figure they’ve always yearned for,” according to press notes.

Baldwin last appeared on Broadway in 2004 in "Twentieth Century."

"Orphans" will begin previews March 19 at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, ahead of an April 7 opening.

Tickets for will be available starting Dec. 30 through Telecharge.
