Daniel Radcliffe's "The Cripple of Inishmaan" heads to Broadway this spring

The NY Times and various other publications have reported that Daniel Radcliffe will return for a Broadway production of 'The Cripple of Inishmaan' starting this April 12, 2014 through July 20.

In a last-minute arrival that will qualify for this year’s Tony Awards, Daniel Radcliffe will return to Broadway in April in the title role of “The Cripple of Inishmaan,” Martin McDonagh’s black comedy about a young man with a sea of troubles who tries to become a movie star. The production, which was mounted in London last summer by the Tony Award-winning director Michael Grandage (“Red”), will begin running at the Cort Theater on April 12, less than two weeks after the closing performance of the Cort’s current double-bill, “Waiting for Godot” and “No Man’s Land.”

Such a quick turnaround is relatively rare for a Broadway theater, but the timing accommodates the schedules of Mr. Radcliffe (best known from the “Harry Potter” movies) and Mr. Grandage while allowing for an official opening at the play’s April 20 matinee — just in time for the April 24 eligibility cut-off for Tony award nominations. Mr. Radcliffe was a surprise Tony snub in 2011 when he was passed over for a nomination for his lead performance in the Broadway revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” He has also starred on Broadway in the 2008 revival of the play “Equus.”
