The actor is reportedly slated to take over the title role of 'Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo' from Kevin Tighe when the play opens in New York next spring.

Robin Williams is well on his way to returning to the Broadway stage to star in Rajiv Joseph's acclaimed play "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo", according to reports. The New York Times reports that producers Robyn Goodman and Kevin McCollum are close to concluding a deal with the funnyman.

The play, set around the Iraq War, is scheduled to open in New York in spring 2011. "Bengal Tiger" won huge acclaim when it debuted at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Culver City, California in May, 2009. It most recently played the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles earlier this year.

Williams is slated to take over from Kevin Tighe in the title role of the Tiger when the play transfers to New York.
