NEW YORK (AP) — Anne Hathaway will be playing something a little different this spring — an Air Force fighter pilot in a one-woman stage show.

The Public Theater said Wednesday that the Academy Award-winner will star in George Brant's play "Grounded" starting April 7. It's about a pilot who is reassigned to operate a military drone.

Visionary director Julie Taymor, behind the beauty of "The Lion King," will direct.

Hathaway, who won an Oscar in Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables," returns to the Public for the first time since she played Viola in a 2009 Shakespeare in the Park production.
