Funnyman Steve Martin is set to add composer to his resume after signing up to create the music for the 50th anniversary season of Shakespeare in the Park concerts in New York's Central Park.

The Grammy-winning banjo player will compose original music for As You Like It, which will feature a live bluegrass band, according to BroadwayWorld.com.

The classic will begin previews at the Delacorte Theater on June 5.

Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's musical Into The Woods will also be part of the 50th anniversary season.
