Neeson returning to the Stage...

Liam Neeson is taking a page out of Hollywood actor Jason Patric's book and returning to the stage. Patric who hit the Dublin stage last week in Bash at the Gate Theatre will now be followed by the big Irish actor who will take huge pay cut to go back to theatre.

The Irish star will return to Broadway in a revival of Arthur Miller's 1953 classic The Crucible. Neeson will play the hero John Proctor, whose courageous stand against the mass hysteria costs him his life in the Salem witch trials drama.

The Ballymena born star has reportedly a soft spot for New York after falling for his wife Natasha Richardson during his debut in 1993 of Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie. His performance also earned him a Tony Award.

He last appeared on Broadway in 1997 during a showing of Oscar Wilde's, Judas Kiss. The show will run next February and the producer David Richenthal has already hired director Richard Eyre for the 15-week stint. He also directed Liam in the Judas Kiss.

Neeson's pay packet for the role will be as low as $1,750 (1,200) a week plus a share of the box office for taking the role.

Theatre is where he started years ago by making his Irish debut in 1976 at Belfast's Lyric Players Theatre in The Risen People.
