Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan, starring Daniel Radcliffe, begins performances on the Great White Way at the Cort Theatre on April 12. Under the direction of Tony winner Michael Grandage, the Broadway transfer of the West End production will play a strictly limited engagement through July 20.
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.
In addition to Radcliffe, the Broadway production features members of the London cast including Ingrid Craigie, Pádraic Delaney, Sarah Greene, Gillian Hanna, Gary Lilburn, Conor MacNeill, Pat Shortt and June Watson. The play is set to open on April 20.
