Robin Williams Broadway - Believe it or not, Broadway will soon welcome Robin Williams - playing a tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. Producers say Robin Williams has signed on to join Rajiv Joseph on the Broadway show.

Williams will make his Broadway debut next year in the play "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo." The award-winning actor has signed on to join Rajiv Joseph's dark comedy that will follow the fall of Saddam Hussein. It's narrated by a philosophical tiger who encounters two American marines and an Iraqi gardener.

It's hard to imagine this, but Robin Williams will play the tiger. Moises Kaufman will direct the play, which premiered last year in Los Angeles. Broadway previews begin March 10 with an opening set for March 31.

In 1988, Williams starred off-Broadway in 1988 opposite Steve Martin in a revival of "Waiting for Godot." It was a success.
