Darren Criss Congratulates Daniel Radcliffe on Closing of "The Cripple of Inishmaan"
Congratulations to the totally awesome Daniel Radcliffe on the closing of "The Cripple of Inishmaan"… http://t.co/KEsYGpNqgG— Darren Criss (@DarrenCriss) July 21, 2014
The Broadway premiere of Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan, starring Daniel Radcliffe, ends its limited Broadway run July 20 at the Cort Theatre.
The Michael Grandage-helmed production officially opened on Broadway April 20 after previews that began April 12. The production arrived in New York after a sold-out London run last summer.
The production earned Tony nominations for Best Revival, Best Direction, Best Featured Actress (Sarah Greene), Lighting Design, Scenic Design and Sound Design.
McDonagh's play was previously seen Off-Broadway in 1998 at The Public Theater and in 2008 at the Atlantic Theater. Radcliffe ("Harry Potter," Equus, How to Succeed...) repeats his performance as Billy, alongside West End cast members 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).
According to producers, "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. Martin McDonagh's comic masterpiece examines an ordinary coming of age in extraordinary circumstances and confirms his position as one of the most original Irish voices to emerge in the second half of the twentieth century."
Audience members can expect to see actors getting bruises during the final performances of The Cripple of Inishmaan on the Great White Way, by the sound of things. Watch below as the always charming Daniel Radcliffe reveals that the cast has recently started walking into doors—and also what his "worst nightmare" is with the show, then race to the Cort Theatre. You've got until July 20 to catch the five-time Broadway.com Audience Choice Award winner's performance live!
