Shia LaBeouf is to make his Broadway debut.

The 'Transformers' actress is to take to the stage in New York in 'Orphans', starring opposite Alec Baldwin, who is returning to the prestigious theatre district for the first time since his 2004 appearance in 'Twentieth Century'.

Shia will play Treat, a young orphaned thief who lives with his mentally disabled younger brother Phillip - a role not yet cast - and goes on to kidnap wealthy older man Harold (Baldwin). However, Treat and his sibling slowly realise that in Harold, they may have found the father figure they have always wanted.

'Orphans' originally premiered in 1983 in Los Angeles and this will be the first time it has been staged on Broadway.

Previews for the production begin on March 19 2013 at the Schoenfeld Theatre, with official opening night set for April 7.

As well as his stage work, Shia will next be seen in Lars von Trier's controversial new movie 'Nymphomaniac' and the 26-year-old actor recently claimed he sent the director footage of himself having sex in a bid to land a role in the film.

He said: ''I know he's a very dangerous director, I know we're trying to do something different. It's not your typical film. It's about what it's about.

''I sent him videotapes of me and my girlfriend having sex and that's how I got the job.''
