Daniel Radcliffe will return to Broadway in 'The Cripple of Inishmaan'
If you didn’t get a chance to see Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe in 2008’s Equus or the 2011 revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, you’ve got another opportunity to catch the Boy Who Acted on the Great White Way.
Radcliffe will star in the title role in a Broadway mounting of Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan, reprising his role from last year’s West End revival at the Noel Coward Theater. The entire cast from the Michael Grandage-directed revival will transfer to Broadway, where it will follow Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen’s double-header Waiting for Godot and No Man’s Land at the Cort Theater.
The Cripple of Inishmaan tells the story of a young handicapped boy from a small community off the coast of Ireland who dreams of Hollywood when a film crew arrives to make a documentary about a neighboring island. The cast includes Ingrid Craigie, Padraic Delaney, Sarah Greene, Gillian Hanna, Gary Lilburn, Conor MacNeill, Pat Shortt and June Watson.
The new production will run from April 12 through July 20, with opening night scheduled for April 20 (just in time to make the cut-off for Tony Award nomination eligibility on April 24). In an interesting bit of ticketing news, the production will make 10,000 tickets available for $27 during the limited run.
