Ben Foster is set to replace Shia LaBeouf in Orphans the producers announced today. He will take over the role of ‘Treat’ and begin rehearsals immediately.
Producers Frederick Zollo and Robert Cole said, “We are delighted that Ben will join Alec Baldwin and Tom Sturridge when rehearsals commence at ORPHANS tomorrow morning. He is an extraordinarily gifted actor.”
I love Foster and think he’s perfect for the role . He had auditioned for the role when they were originally casting but LaBeouf got the part. This will be his Broadway debut.
Production dates remain unchanged thus far, with previews beginning March 19 and opening night on April 7 at the Schoenfeld Theatre (236 W. 45th Street).
