Thirty-nine years after she first appeared on Broadway as a child in a production of “The Cherry Orchard,” Diane Lane is preparing to return to Broadway, in the same show, this time as its star.

The Roundabout Theater Company, a nonprofit that operates three Broadway theaters, said Tuesday that Ms. Lane would play the lead role, Madame Lyubov Andreyevna Ranevskaya, in a revival of the Chekhov classic this fall. The play has been staged frequently — this will be the 16th run on Broadway, according to the Internet Broadway Database — but this staging will use a new adaptation, by the celebrated young playwright Stephen Karam (“The Humans”).
