22 Jun 2014
Another "Harry Potter" star is headed to Broadway: It was recently announced that Rupert Grint will make his Broadway debut in Terrence McNally's It's Only a Play this fall. Now that two of the Harry Potter threesome have made it to The Great White Way, we wondered: In which stage role would our readers want to see Emma Watson, the fiery third member of the Gryffindor clan?
Watson rose to stardom playing Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" film series. She also starred in "My Week With Marilyn" and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." Playbill.com polled our readers via Facebook and Twitter. Their responses follow:
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
