Liam Neeson will trade the bright lights of Hollywood for the stage lights of London early next year.
Neeson will lead the Almeida Theater production of "The Judas Kiss," David Hare's play about Oscar Wilde. The play will open Feb. 17 for a five-week run.
Hare and director Sir Richard Eyre count among their joint credits "Racing Demon" and "Skylight," which received Tony Award nominations for Best Play in 1996 and 1997.
Neeson, who won an Academy Award nomination for "Schindler's List," last appeared on stage in a 1992 Broadway revival of "Anna Christie," co-starring with his wife, Natasha Richardson.
