STAGE TUBE: Daniel Radcliffe Chats THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN and More on CHARLIE ROSE
The Michael Grandage Company production of The Cripple of Inishmaan, by Martin McDonagh, starring Daniel Radcliffe and the critically acclaimed West End cast, directed by Tony Award-winner Michael Grandage, opened on Sunday, April 20 at the Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street). The production will play a strictly limited run through Sunday, July 20. Radcliffe recently sat down for a feature interview on "Charlie Rose." Click below to watch the conversation!
The production marks the Broadway premiere for Academy Award-winner Martin McDonagh's heralded play, and the first Broadway transfer from Michael Grandage Company, a London based production company set up by director, Michael Grandage and producer, James Bierman (both formerly of the Donmar) to produce work across all media. The Cripple of Inishmaan comes to Broadway following its sold out run last summer at the West End's Noel Coward Theatre, where it was part of an award-winning season of five plays produced by Michael Grandage Company.
In addition to Mr. Radcliffe, the production features 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).
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 (Daniel 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.
