Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts is to make her Broadway debut next spring in a revival of Richard Greenberg's play Three Days of Rain.

Roberts, the star of hit movies Pretty Woman and Erin Brockovich, will appear in the drama for three months.

It will be one of her first acting roles since giving birth to twins last November. She told the New York Times she was already feeling nervous.

"By the time I get there, I'll be entirely apoplectic," she said.

"But the terror is part of the excitement."

She is the latest big name to sign up for Broadway shows. Denzel Washington, Jessica Lange and Kathleen Turner have all recently appeared on stage there.
