One of the stars of the FX drama series “The Americans,” which wrapped in May after six seasons, is on her way to Broadway. Variety reports that Keri Russell, who played Russian spy Elizabeth Jennings on the series, will join Adam Driver in the first Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson’s “Burn This.”

“Tony Award winner Michael Mayer will direct the show, which begins performances in March of 2019 at a theater yet to be announced,” Variety reports.

The publication adds: “’Burn This’ is set in the ’80s and tells the story of four New Yorkers, whose lives are shaken up after a young dancer’s accidental death. Russell will play a modern dancer named Anna, and Driver will portray Pale, a hyperactive restaurant manager, who are brought together in wake of the tragedy. The rest of the cast will be announced shortly.”

Russell received three Primetime Emmy nominations for her work on “The Americans.”
