Captain America is coming to Broadway — and PEOPLE has the exclusive first look.

Chris Evans, 36, is making his Broadway debut alongside Michael Cera in Lobby Heroa play from Oscar-winning screenwriter (Manchester by the Sea) and playwright (This Is Our Youth) Kenneth Lonergan.

It’ll be the first show both for Second Stage Theater’s inaugural Broadway season and for the opening of New York City’s newly renovated Hayes Theater. Performances begin in March 1 with an opening night set for March 26.

Directed by Trip Cullman, Lobby Hero follows a security guard, his strict supervisor, a rookie cop and her overbearing partner — all convening in the foyer of a middle-income Manhattan apartment building where a murder investigation is underway (Emmy nominee Brian Tyree Henry, of Atlanta fame, and Bel Powley also star).

The play first premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons in 2001, with a cast that included Tate Donovan and Heather Burns. It has never played on Broadway.

In 2014, Evans also made another big debut: his directorial, with the film Before We Go. He also starred in the project, alongside Alice Eve.
