Examples of revivals with the original star?

In reply to: JERUSALEM with Mark Rylance and Mackenzie Crook to return to the West End - MockingbirdGirl 08:56 am EDT 07/29/21

It will have been 10 years since Rylance and Crook played these roles, and a bit more since they played the roles in London.

I know the Jerusalem revival is not happening on Broadway, but I was wondering if people know of similar circumstances for Broadway. It's not that unusual for original stars to return to the same Broadway production (John Lloyd Young for Jersey Boys and Lea Salonga for Miss Saigon, for example). But original stars returning to headline a revival is less common, although Yul Brynner, Carol Channing, and Alan Cumming quickly come to mind. Are there other examples of an Original Broadway Cast star returning to headline a Broadway revival?
