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.
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."
