Presented with Ryan Murphy, the 2016 production will also star Gabriel Byrne and John Gallagher Jr.

Jessica Lange is returning to Broadway.

The actress will grace the stage in a revival of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night, the Roundabout Theatre Company and Ryan Murphy announced Tuesday. Directed by Jonathan Kent, the production will begin previews on March 31, 2016, before its official April 19 opening at the American Airlines Theatre.

Lange will reprise her role as Mary Tyrone, for which she was nominated for an Olivier Award in the West End in 2000.

Gabriel Byrne will play James Tyrone, and John Gallagher Jr. will play Edmond Tyrone.

The last Broadway revival of O'Neill's 1956 play — the story of the Tyrone family and their battle to unearth and conceal a lifetime of secrets, and drawing heavily on the playwright's personal history — was a starry production in 2003, starring Brian Dennehy, Vanessa Redgrave, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robert Sean Leonard and directed by Robert Falls.
