Michael Grandage production of Martin McDonagh's , starring The Cripple of Inishmaan Daniel Radcliffe, begins Broadway previews April 12 at the Cort Theatre following a sold-out London run.
The production marks the Broadway premiere for McDonagh's play, which was previously seen Off-Broadway in 1998 at
the Public Theater and in 2008 at the Atlantic Theater. Grandage's production played a sold-out London run last summer. It officially opens on Broadway April 20 for a limited run through July 20.
Radcliffe ("Harry Potter,"
) repeats his performance as Billy, alongside West End cast members Equus, How to Succeed... Ingrid Craigie (Kate Osborne), Pádraic Delaney (Babbybobby), Sarah Greene (Helen McCormick), Gillian Hanna (Eileen Osborne), Gary Lilburn (Doctor), Conor MacNeill (Bartley McCormick), Pat Shortt (Johnnypateenmike) and June Watson (Mammy).
According to producers, "Set on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland, word arrives that a Hollywood film is being made on the neighboring island of Inishmore. The one person who wants to be in the film more than anybody is young Cripple Billy (Radcliffe), if only to break away from the bitter tedium of his daily life. Martin McDonagh's comic masterpiece examines an ordinary coming of age in extraordinary circumstances and confirms his position as one of the most original Irish voices to emerge in the second half of the twentieth century."
The Broadway production is produced by Michael Grandage Company,
Arielle Tepper Madover, L.T.D. Productions, Martin McCallum, Stephanie P. McClelland, Stacey Mindich, Starry Night Entertainment, and The Shubert Organization.
