Ahead of its release on the streaming giant Netflix, Martin Scorsese's directorial 'The Irishman' will get a run at Broadway theatre. The limited-run will include shows at Broadway's historic Belasco Theatre from November 1 to December 1, as per reports. The flick chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and also explores the hidden corridors of organised crime and its connections to mainstream politics.
"We've lost so many wonderful theaters in New York City in recent years, including single house theaters like the Ziegfeld and the Paris. The opportunity to recreate that singular experience at the historic Belasco Theatre is incredibly exciting," director Scorsese said in a statement. For tickets valuing at USD 15 plus processing fee, the film will screen eight times in a week during its run at the Broadway.

Based on the Charles Brandt novel 'I Heard You Paint Houses', the film will take the audience back to post-WWII America exploring the world of organised crime. "The Irishman" follows the story of Frank Sheeran (De Niro), a mob hitman and World War II veteran who develops his skills during his service in Italy. Along with De Niro and Pacino, the film also stars Bobby Cannavale, Harvey Keitel, and Anna Paquin.
"Now an old man, he reflects on the events that defined his career as a hitman, particularly the role he played in the disappearance of labour leader Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino), his longtime friend, and his involvement with the Bufalino crime family," reads the official plotline of the film.
