NEW YORK (CBS SF/AP) – San Francisco-native, Alicia Silverstone is coming back to Broadway in a romantic comedy set in the porn industry.

Producers of David West Read’s comedy “The Performers” said Wednesday the actress will join Henry Winkler and “30 Rock” star Cheyenne Jackson in the play, which begin previews October 23 at the Longacre Theatre.

It’s about two high school friends who reconnect at the Adult Film Awards in Las Vegas. Silverstone will play the girlfriend of one of the friends.

The rest of the cast includes Daniel Breaker, Ari Graynor and Jenni Barber. Evan Cabnet, director of Read’s “The Dream of the Burning Boy,” will direct.

Silverstone made her Broadway debut in 2002 in “The Graduate” and was last on Broadway in 2010 opposite Laura Linney in “Time Stands Still.”
