(AP) Denzel Washington is returning to Broadway but he won't be singing.


Standing with his wife, Pauletta Pearson, on the red carpet Monday at the premiere his new movie, "2 Guns," the Oscar- and Tony-winning actor said he's set to appear in a revival of Lorraine Hansberry's "A Raisin in the Sun."


"We start previews in March," he said.


Washington then explained his motivation for returning to the stage.


"I'm trying to keep up with my wife. My wife has been doing a lot more theater than me," he said as Pearson smiled.


Washington said they were heading to North Carolina for the National Black Theatre Festival, where Pearson is starring in the award-winning "Power Play."


"I'm looking forward to one day singing," Washington said playfully to Pearson's amusement. "See, I just wanted to get something out of her. She knows I can't sing. But she can sing."


As they walked away, the 58-year-old actor continued: "I can sing. I can sing ... in the shower."
