NEW YORK, Nov 30, 2005 (UPI via COMTEX) -- Film and TV star Oliver Platt is set to make his Broadway debut in the U.S. production of "Shining City," it was reported Wednesday.

The Emmy and Golden Globe nominee will play the role of John in the Manhattan Theatre Club's spring production of the play that originated at London's Royal Court Theater, Playbill reported.

Platt's character is described as "a guilt-ridden man who visits a therapist after seeing the ghost of his recently deceased wife," Playbill said.

What starts out as an everyday exchange between the two men turns into a struggle for survival that will change both men.

Tony Award winner Robert Falls will direct Conor McPherson's play at the Biltmore Theatre. Previews are scheduled to begin April 13.
