Tickets are now available for the Broadway transfer of Tony winner Michael Grandage's critically-acclaimed West End production of Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan, starring Daniel Radcliffe. The production marks the Broadway premiere for McDonagh’s heralded play and the entire London cast will play a strictly limited engagement April 12 through July 20. Opening night is set for April 20 at the Cort Theatre.
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.
The Cripple of Inishmaan features the London cast including Radcliffe (Cripple Billy), 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).
Check out Radcliffe below giving an interview about the challenges of tackling the show's dialect and hard subject matter, and how Harry Potter fans have affected the production.
