Highlights From Broadway-Bound The Cripple of Inishmaan Starring Daniel Radcliffe
Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan is based on actual events — in 1934, Robert J. Flaherty brought a film crew to the tiny island of Inishmaan to capture life there and on other surrounding islands. Daniel Radcliffe stars as Billy, a young man with a disability who vies for a part in the Hollywood film in hopes of escaping the boredom, gossip, poverty and isolation of his life. Michael Grandage will direct the production at the Cort Theatre. Performances run through July 20. See the show's details in the Playbill Vault.
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.
