New York - The London hit play, 'The Cripple of Inishmaan', starring Daniel Radcliffe, is heading to the New York stage. The show will open at the Cort Theater on April 20.
'The Cripple of Inishmaan' will mark Harry Potter star Radcliffe's Broadway debut, The Washington Post notes. The play is a dark comedy by Martin McDonagh. The basic plot concerns a community based in the Western Coast of Ireland during the 1930s. The humdrum life of the inhabitants is turned on its head when they learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighbouring Inis Mór to make a documentary about life on the islands. One resident, "Cripple" Billy Claven (the part played by Radcliffe), vies for a part in the film, and to everyone's surprise, the orphan and outcast gets his chance.
The play has enjoyed a recent success in London and it has an initial three month run in New York. The entire cast of the London production will grace Broadway, according to The Guardian.
For Daniel Radcliffe, the play represents another step away from his association with the boy wizard Harry Potter. Since completing the eight part movie series, Radcliffe has starred in the 2012 horror film 'The Woman in Black', and played beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the 2013 independent film 'Kill Your Darlings'.
A number of other big name productions are due to open on Broadway in Spring, including 'A Raisin in the Sun' starring Denzel Washington, and James Franco in John Steinbeck classic 'Of Mice and Men'.
