Grab your school scarf and your broomstick, because Broadway is beginning to look a lot like Hogwarts. With Daniel Radcliffe playing the title role in The Cripple of Inishmaan and Rupert Grint gearing up to play wunderkind director Frank Finger in It’s Only a Play, Broadway is seeing its fair share of young wizards—but there’s a few more we’d love to see on the boards. We don’t know if any of them can sing, but hey, a Hufflepuff can dream!
Come on, Emma, complete the Harry Potter trifecta! We’ve been hoping for Hermione’s Broadway debut ever since we saw her dance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon in 2012, but now it’s just getting ridiculous. Make our lives “perfectly marvelous” and play Sally Bowles in Cabaret!
The English actor and singer played sinister Slytherin Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter films, but now that he’s all grown up we think it’s high time he hopped the pond and made his Broadway debut. We’d love to see him find his corner of the sky in Pippin—and after seeing him shirtless on TNT’s Murder in the First, we know this is an excellent decision.
If she makes her Broadway debut, the name on everybody’s lips is gonna be Bonnie. Yep, we’re envisioning the all-grown-up Ginny Weasley as conniving inmate Roxie Hart in Chicago. The Chamber of Secrets is nothing compared to Cook County Jail.
After his impressive transformation from geek to stud, Matthew Lewis has certainly become Broadway leading man material. After playing the bumbling Neville Longbottom in the Harry Potter franchise, we think it’s time the star was promoted to leader of the pack—the Newsies pack! Can’t you see this member of Dumbledore's Army leading the newsboys strike as Jack Kelly in the hit Disney musical?
The stage and screen actress spent years perfecting that “permanently surprised look” as Luna Lovegood in Harry Potter—now that she’s all grown up, we’d love to see her go from loony Luna to lovelorn Lauren in Kinky Boots. Besides, we already know she has awesome taste in shoes.
