Daniel Radcliffe's acting career has gone has gone from the small screen to the big screen to critically-acclaimed West End musicals.
At just 22, Radcliffe has already achieved so much, although his theatre work is often overlooked, so here we throw the spotlight on his experience of treading the boards.
Fresh from starting his rapid rise to stardom following the 2001 release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Radcliffe made a guest appearance in the production The Play What I Wrote a year later. The show was directed by fellow Potter co-star Kenneth Branagh – AKA Professor Gilderoy Lockhart – and is based on the comedy duo of Eric Morecambe and Ernie Wise. Other high-profile actors to have appeared in The Play What I Wrote include Jeff Goldblum, Kevin Kline, Ewan McGregor and Roger Moore.
Breakthrough on Broadway and in the West End
Equus is a play charting the unusual relationship that a teenage boy has with horses and it provided the platform for Radcliffe to make his Broadway debut in the role of Alan Strang in 2008 following a successful West End run. Radcliffe’s involvement in the production hit the headlines as he did a full frontal scene, much to the delight to many of his fans. Not only that, Radcliffe picked up the gongs for Favorite Breakthrough Performance and Favorite Leading Actor in a Broadway Play as part of the Broadway.com Audience Awards in 2009.
Back to Broadway
Radcliffe last year landed the lead role in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, an inspirational musical about one man’s quest to get to the top. The critics gave Radcliffe mixed reviews, but he must have been doing something as he contributed to the show receiving no fewer than nine nominations in the 2011 Tony Awards.
Will Radcliffe appear in a stage version of The Woman In Black following his success of the film earlier this year? Only time will tell, although it’s well worth checking out at London’s Fortune Theatre regardless, with sites like Ticket.com offering good deals on the best seats.
