BWW TV: On the Red Carpet for Opening Night of THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN!
All of Broadway's biggest stars gathered yesterday afternoon, April 20, at the Cort Theatre to celebrate opening night of The Cripple of Inishmaan, by Martin McDonagh. BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge was on the red carpet for the star-studded theatre arrivals, and below you can check out interviews with Michael Grandage, Joel Grey, Michael Mayer, and more!
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.
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.
