Brian Tyree Henry is heading back on Broadway.

The Atlanta actor and Emmy nominee for This Is Us will join Chris Evans and Michael Cera in the Broadway play Lobby Hero. Trip Cullman is directing the Second Stage Theater production of the play, written by Kenneth Lonergan.

Lobby Hero begins previews on March 1 at the Helen Hayes Theater ahead of an opening night on March 26.

The 2001 play from the Oscar-winning Manchester by the Sea scribe explores what happens when emotions come in conflict with principles, and how choices under pressure define who we really are. It centers on a murder investigation in the lobby of a Manhattan apartment building, and traces the collisions of an ambitious young security guard, his stern boss, an intense rookie cop and her unpredictable partner.

Henry made his Broadway debut in 2011, originating the role of "The General" in the hit musical The Book of Mormon. Beyond TV and theater, his upcoming film projects include the Blumhouse title Only You, Steve McQueen’s crime drama Widows, the thriller Hotel Artemis with Jodie Foster and Sterling K. Brown, and the real-life drama White Boy Rick with Matthew McConaughey. He is repped by CAA and JWS Entertainment.
