Susan Sarandon and Geoffrey Rush will star together in the Broadway revival of Exit the King. The play will begin this March for a limited run at the Barrymore Theater.
Rush will be reprising his role as the dying King Berenger, whose kingdom is falling apart at the seams. Rush actually starred in the original production, which was a hit in Australia in 2007. This is the actor's first time doing a Broadway show. However, Exit the King marks Sarandon's second stage stint, as the actress starred in a short-lived run of An Evening With Richard Nixon and..., which ran in 1972. Sarandon will play Queen Margeurite, one of King Berenger's wives.
