After making a bold Broadway debut in the powerful equine drama Equus and following up with a singing, dancing stint in the glossy 1960s musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the always astonishing Daniel Radcliffe is back for round three on the Broadway stage — in something completely, totally different.
Radcliffe willreprise his role as Billy in playwright Martin McDonagh’s 1996 black comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan, which follows a handicapped Irish boy (Radcliffe) who dreams of appearing in a documentary being filmed by a Hollywood crew on a nearby island (the real-life 1934 film Man of Aran).

Radcliffe, 24, will arrive first, in April, for a limited engagement of Irish playwright Martin McDonagh's 1930's period black comedy The Cripple of Inishmaan - about a young man with basically nothing who aims to get cast in a movie when a Hollywood crew comes to his coastal village.

Los Angeles, Jan 18: "Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe will return to Broadway for the third time. He will reprise the role he played in London's West End last summer in "The Cripple of Inishmaan".

Star will reprise his role in Michael Grandage Company's production of Martin McDonagh's play
The New York run, which will preview from 12 April at the 1,082-seat Cort theatre before its official opening on 20 April, marks the first Broadway production of McDonagh's classic story about the inhabitants of a small Irish town who clamour for roles in a locally shot Hollywood film.
Radcliffe won acclaim for his West End performance in the play, with several critics claiming it as his best on stage to date. Michael Billington wrote: "He makes you care about a character who, in some ways, is a clever literary conceit."

Daniel Radcliffe has pranced around naked and danced up a storm, but nothing may prepare theatergoers for his next acting challenge. The “Harry Potter” star will enter the dark, severely demented world of playwright Martin McDonagh in the pitch-black “The Cripple of Inishmaan.” It marks a third trip to Broadway for the 24-year old star, who has previously appeared in “Equus” and ”How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” the sources of the aforementioned nudity and hoofing. Radcliffe previously anchored a West End revival of the play that earned solid notices for his work as a young cripple who wants. »
