NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- Actor Kevin Kline said he is excited to be returning to the Broadway stage this fall in a revival of "Cyrano de Bergerac."

The new production of the 17th century-set romantic comedy, with "Nine" director David Leveaux at the helm, is scheduled to begin previews at New York's Richard Rodgers Theatre on Oct. 12, ahead of a planned Nov. 1 opening.

The limited engagement is expected to run through Dec. 23.

"This is a play I’ve always wanted to do -- since college," Kline told UPI in New York recently.

Asked if he was looking forward to working with former "Alias" star Jennifer Garner, Kline replied: “Very much. I’m a big fan."

Kline won a Tony Award for his performance in "On the Twentieth Century" and he has also appeared in Broadway productions of "The Pirates of Penzance" and "Ivanov." Off-Broadway, the actor has starred in "Mother Courage and Her Children" and "King Lear."

He will also be seen later this month in the big-screen drama "Trade."
