Chris Evans is ready for his Broadway debut.

The Captain America actor will star opposite Michael Cera in Lobby Hero, written by Kenneth Lonergan. The Second Stage Theater production, directed by Trip Cullman, will reopen the Helen Hayes Theater in March 2018.  

The new play from the Oscar-winning Manchester by the Sea scribe explores what happens when emotions come in conflict with principles, and how do 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.

Second Stage also announced that its inaugural Broadway season will also include Straight White Men, directed by Anna D. Shapiro and opening in July 2018. Set on Christmas Eve, a father and his three adult sons are thrown off by a question that forces them to confront their own identities. Written by Obie-winner Young Jean Lee, the father-son dramedy makes her the first female Asian-American playwright ever to be produced on Broadway.
