“We were fortunate enough that we got a great reaction from London crowds, but I remember at the time really thinking, ‘God, this play, I really think it would go down so well in New York, and I really hope we get the chance to do it there,’” Radcliffe tells EW from the set of Frankenstein, which he’s shooting in England with James McAvoy. “And then it just didn’t look like it was going to happen, so when the opportunity came around again earlier this year, I just leapt at it. We had a great time doing it in London, and I’m pretty sure I can speak for everyone involved when I say that.”

“So much of the humor is derived from the characters being incredibly cruel to each other, and yet it manages to have this incredible, tender heart,” says Radcliffe. It’s because of this surprising nature of McDonagh’s viciously funny and politically incorrect comedy that makes Radcliffe eager to see how American audiences will connect with the material as opposed to more “reserved” British crowds.

“New York audiences are always louder, and I mean that in the best possible way,” he laughs. “When somebody says something totally shocking and you hear that wonderful intake of shocked breath from the audience, I remember thinking how great that reaction would be in the States. And there are a couple of lines particularly that relate to America that I think would get a big response. It’s pretty exciting as an actor to get the audience to a point where they’re laughing, almost in spite of themselves.”
