Emmy and Tony nominee Gregory Itzin will play Enron chairman Kenneth Lay in Broadway's ENRON, according to a report in The New York Times. Lucy Prebble's play, directed by Rupert Goold, is scheduled to begin previews on April 8 at the Broadhurst Theatre in anticipation of an April 27 opening.

Previously announced casting includes Norbert Leo Butz as Jeffrey Skilling and Stephen Kunken as Andy Fastow, along with Rightor Doyle, January LaVoy, Ian Kahn, Madisyn Shipman, Mary Stewart Sullivan, and Noah Weisberg.

Inspired by the real-life financial scandal of 2001, the production features scenic and costume design by Anthony Ward, lighting by Mark Henderson, music and sound by Adam Cork, video and projection by Jon Driscoll, and movement by Scott Ambler.

The London production of the show, which has played the Chichester Festival and the Royal Court Theatre, is playing at the West End's Noel Coward Theatre.

Itzin received an Emmy nomination for his role as President Charles Logan on the Fox series, 24. He received a Tony Award nomination for The Kentucky Cycle and his other stage credits include Waiting for Godot, The Birthday Party, Endgame, Shipwrecked!, and Dangerous Corner.
