Darren Criss Congratulates Daniel Radcliffe on Closing of "The Cripple of Inishmaan"

Darren Criss had the opportunity to attend Daniel Radcliffe's final performance of Martin McDonagh's Broadway show, The Cripple of Inishmaan. After the show, Darren met Daniel backstage to congratulate him on completing the 3-month run of the Tony-nominated production.

Daniel Radcliffe Takes Final Bow as Broadway's Cripple of Inishmaan

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."

Daniel Radcliffe Talks Inishmaan's Final Performances

damn, Dan looks terrible. And I thought he was in rehab.

Wait, what?

He looked terrible during the London run of the play as well. I think he went straight into the Frankenstein film and then straight to Broadway. Hopefully he'll get a break after this but knowing Dan he'll probably have 10 more projects lined up for this year.

watch Darren now take the role over from Daniel, lol. He can't help but follow in Daniel's footsteps eternally

rumor has it they wanted Daniel to play Blaine initially (lol jk)
wowthatisminty 21st-Jul-2014 03:38 pm (UTC)
I wish Daniel had played Blaine

I haven't really followed Dan post-Harry Potter. Why does he look so rough compared to his other co-stars that look their age?
inwazyja 21st-Jul-2014 03:41 pm (UTC)
Really? Have you seen more or less recent pictures of Rupert?
dior_chic 21st-Jul-2014 03:43 pm (UTC)
Ok I haven't really kept up with him either lol. Now I'm going to have to look him up now.

Have you seen Rupert Grint lately?
kindalingers 21st-Jul-2014 03:51 pm (UTC)
Draco is also looking rough but that started towards the end of HP
spiral_mystik 21st-Jul-2014 04:40 pm (UTC)
The only HP kids who look good now are Emma, Matthew and Alfie. The rest look awful.

look at the pain in daniel radcliffe's eyes though

Also I totally saw Darren with my own two eyes a couple weekends ago at a Starkid show. He was sitting discreetly in the back row and rushed into hiding during intermission & left with the quickness as soon as the show ended so that he wouldnt get bombarded by fans.
luvthatdrtywata 21st-Jul-2014 03:44 pm (UTC)
how was their new show?
hope_remains 21st-Jul-2014 03:49 pm (UTC)
They actually have two shows going on right now, The Trail to Oregon and ANI (which is a Star Wars parody).

I LOOOOOOOOOOVED The Trail to Oregon, I thought it was absolutely hilarious. Plus there's some audience interaction which was fun. It was super clever overall, but unfortunately a lot of the jokes went over a lot of the audience's heads because they were either 1) too young to have ever played Oregon Trail or 2) too old to have ever played it (because they're parents that came to the show with their kids).

The Star Wars parody was also excellent but I am not a Star Wars fan and havent even seen all the movies so I missed many of the jokes unfortunately... but the music was great.

I've always wanted to see a Starkid show!!! What did you see and how does one go about seeing one? Lol

Darren Criss is the worst
luvthatdrtywata 21st-Jul-2014 03:43 pm (UTC)
this is a very bad pic of both of them. i would kinda love to see them work together though. i know darren is a fanboy but it's not really his fault he gets cast in the roles he does. who is gonna turn down broadway? he made a silly little harry potter play in college that was never meant to be anything beyond that.

kindalingers 21st-Jul-2014 03:53 pm (UTC)
I'm glad he's got a promising career post Potter, it really could have gone the other way.
clouddomino 21st-Jul-2014 03:57 pm (UTC)
H..how tall is Dan? Because Darren's only like 5'8".
hope_remains 21st-Jul-2014 03:59 pm (UTC)
