Actress Angela Lansbury is returning to the Broadway stage.

The veteran actress and Broadway icon is set to star in a revival of Enid Bagnold’s 1955 play The Chalked Garden in the 2016 -17 season, reported Digital Spy.

The play will be produced by Andrew Bryan and Scott Rudin, who is one of the only people to win an Emmy, an Oscar, a Grammy and a Tony, and tells the story of a wealthy eccentric who lives with her troubled granddaughter.

She soon hires a mysterious woman who quickly proves a match for her employer and a positive influence on her wayward granddaughter.

No other cast have been announced for the production yet.

The 90-year-old actress has enjoyed a prestigious career on the stage, winning four Tony awards as a lead actress in a musical, including roles in Gypsy in 1975 and “Sweeney Todd” in 1979.

She won a fifth Tony award in 2007 for featured actress in a play in Noel Coward’s Blithe Spirit, which also won Lansbury her first ever Olivier Award last year at the age of 89 when she reprised the role for its subsequent production in London.

Lansbury’s most recent Broadway appearance was in Gore Vidal’s 2012 production of The Best Man.

In addition to her work on the stage, Lansbury is best known for her TV work as crime-solving author Jessica Fletcher in Murder, She Wrote, and in films for her roles in Bedknobs and Broomsticks and The Manchurian Candidate.
