The Cripple of Inishmaan tells the story of a young handicapped boy from a small community off the coast of Ireland who dreams of Hollywood when a film crew arrives to make a documentary about a neighboring island. The cast includes Ingrid Craigie, Padraic Delaney, Sarah Greene, Gillian Hanna, Gary Lilburn, Conor MacNeill, Pat Shortt and June Watson.
The new production will run from April 12 (Preview Night) through July 20, with opening night scheduled for April 20 (just in time to make the cut-off for Tony Award nomination eligibility on April 24). In an interesting bit of ticketing news, the production will make 10,000 tickets available for $27 during the limited run.
The Cripple of Inishmaan, starring Radcliffe in the title role, is coming to Broadway’s Cort Theatre with the entire London cast.
Daniel Radcliffe made his West End debut in 2007 and Broadway debut in 2008-2009 in Peter Shaffer’s Equus. He returned to Broadway in 2011 for a 10-month sold out run in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Since completing the final installment in the series of eight Harry Potter films in 2010, Radcliffe has continued to prove himself a diverse and acclaimed talent. He stars in Sony Pictures Classics’, Kill Your Darlings, which, having premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, opened to rave reviews. He will next be seen starring opposite Zoe Kazan in CBS Films and eOne’s romantic comedy, The F Word, as well as starring opposite Juno Temple in the horror-thriller Horns, which is based on Joe Hill’s best-selling book. All three films were invited to screen at the recent Toronto International Film Festival. He is currently shooting Frankenstein with James McAvoy for Twentieth Century Fox. In 2012, Radcliffe starred in Hammer’s The Woman in Black, which has since become the most successful British horror film of all time, in addition to its box office success in the US. Last summer, in addition to starring in The Cripple of Inishmaan in the West End, he filmed the second series of Sky Art’s A Young Doctor’s Notebook, again opposite Jon Hamm (broadcast on Ovation in the US).
Meera Syal reprises her scene-stealing role as randy grandmother Ummi, at one point explaining to Daniel Radcliffe that: “The Weasleys are just like an Indian family: boy, boy, boy, then they have a girl and stop having sex.” Daniel Radcliffe was asked: “Of all the legends you worked with [on the Harry Potter series] who was the worst actor?”

“For all his fame and success I don’t think he’s ever been nominated for an acting award so I think it’s really amazing that Canadians have recognized the actor that he’s become,” said Mastai, up for best adapted screenplay against Ken Scott and Michael Dowse of “The Grand Seduction,” Javier Gullon of “Enemy,” Robert Lepage for “Triptyque” and Michel Marc Bouchard and Dolan for “Tom at the Farm.”
“The F Word” is among several titles that have yet to hit theatres. It’s expected out in the summer, while Villeneuve’s “Enemy” comes out March 14, immediately following the March 9 awards bash.
