Shia LaBeouf is about to transform — into a Broadway actor.

The ex-star of the “Transformers” franchise will make his Broadway debut opposite Alec Baldwin in Lyle Kessler’s “Orphans” at the Schoenfeld Theatre starting March 19. Daniel Sullivan will direct.

The play, which premiered in 1983, tells the story of two orphaned brothers living in a decrepit Philadelphia row house who decide to kidnap a wealthy man. LaBeouf plays one brother and Baldwin the target.

LaBeouf, whose films include “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” was most recently seen in John Hillcoat’s crime drama “Lawless.”

He will next be in Robert Redford’s “The Company You Keep” and in “The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman” opposite Evan Rachel Wood.
