NEW YORK, N.Y. - Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick will be back together again on Broadway in a revival of Terrence McNally's "It's Only a Play."

The ensemble also will include Tony Award winner Stockard Channing, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham and Emmy winner Megan Mullally. Jack O'Brien will direct.

The revival will play the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and opening night is set for Oct. 9.

Lane and Broderick last appeared together on Broadway in "The Odd Couple" and famously before that in "The Producers."

Lane most recently starred in Douglas Carter Beane's "The Nance," for which he received a 2013 Best Actor Tony nomination. Broderick last appeared on Broadway in "Nice Work If You Can Get It."

"It's Only a Play," which previously appeared off-Broadway in 1986, is a send-up of show business. It is set on the eve of a play's opening night and its anxious playwright has to deal with Broadway show business types as they await the first reviews.

It is only the latest in recent works celebrating the behind-the-scenes life of the theatre, which includes "Act One," a Tony-nominated show built around producer and director Moss Hart's autobiography, and the upcoming Atlantic Theater Company's production of Halley Feiffer's "I'm Gonna Pray For You So Hard," about an actress and her stage director father spending a boozy night talking.
