Dan and cast in rehearsals for Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

With the first performance of Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead less than a month away, take a look at some of the action from inside the Rehearsal Room. Pictures are available in multiple sources and in our gallery.

Against the backdrop of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, this mind-bending situation comedy sees two hapless minor characters, Rosencrantz (Daniel Radcliffe) and Guildenstern (Joshua McGuire), take centre stage with David Haig as The Player. Increasingly out of their depth, the young double act stumble their way in and out of the action of this iconic drama. In a literary hall of mirrors, Stoppard’s brilliantly funny, existential labyrinth sees us witness the ultimate identity crisis.

Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead runs from 25 February – 29 April.

Concert adaptation for How to Succeed

how-to-succeed-630x310

A new series of musicals reimagined as concerts will take place later this year, starting with How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying performed at the Royal Festival Hall.

The concert will feature the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Mike Dixon, alongside an ensemble of yet to be announced performers.

Co-produced by Elliot Davis and concert promoters Senbla, the show will play for one night at the Royal Festival Hall on May 19.

Senbla managing director Ollie Rosenblatt said: “Bringing this show to the London concert stage is a great privilege. To start work on a production that has stamped itself firmly as one of the great shows in the history of musical theatre is hugely exciting, and this being one of many more musicals in concerts we will be producing we hope this will be a new form of entertainment for the public to get their teeth into”.

Davis added that the concert series “will see us honing in on the timeless classics of musical theatre and bringing them to concert in London with the best orchestras, casts and creative teams we can assemble”.

Further shows in the series have not yet been announced.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying – which was revived on Broadway in 2011 in a production starring Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette – features music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock, and Willie Gilbert.

Cripple of Inishmaan and What if

The last show for the Cripple of Inishmaan was yesterday and while a few of my friends said the last days were hectic. A lot of pictures from backstage, the stage door and whatever else may have you were splashed everywhere from facebook, to tumblr to twitter and instagram.

The anticipation from the What if Premiere in Toronto today with Daniel appearing at the premiere will be the highlight of today’s news. Yesterday we gave away tickets to two people: Shirley and Anika for them and their guest. I hope they enjoy the premiere, and have fun.

Today’s news is from MTV: Daniel Radcliffe Doesn’t Think About His ‘Harry Potter’ Co-Stars Getting Naked and a new clip from What if featured on Vulture’s website.

Thanks to a friend of mine, Erica for donating photos from the Trevor Talk Back during the Cripple of Inishmaan. Also added more from the Cripple of Inishmaan Stage Door as well.

HLN Tv Interview

While Harry Potter might be the role Daniel Radcliffe is best known for, it’s Broadway where this young actor is currently making his mark. HLN’s Jon Sarlin (@jonsarlin) caught up with Radcliffe in New York to talk about his performance in his third Broadway play, “The Cripple of Inishmaan”.

Radcliffe plays the role of Billy Claven, a crippled orphan in 1930s rural Ireland, who tries to escape the island in search of a rumored Hollywood film set nearby. Radcliffe describes Martin McDonagh, the play’s writer whose credits also include the movies “In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths,” as “one of the smartest, funniest writers around.”

The 24-year-old actor also talks about what life is like for him in New York, why he isn’t deciding between London and New York just yet and what thing New Yorkers just refuse to do that amazes him.

Frankenstein gets retitled to Victor Frankenstein

James-McAvoy Fox’s Frankenstein is now officially titled “Victor Frankenstein,” and the official synopsis has been revealed:

“James McAvoy is Victor Von Frankenstein and Daniel Radcliffe stars as Igor in a unique, never-before-seen twist on Mary Shelley’s classic 19th century novel. Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Victor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man—and the legend—we know today.”

Directed by Paul McGuigan (Lucky Number Slevin) from a script written by Max Landis (Chronicle), Victor Frankenstein is set to be released on October 2nd, 2015.

On other news, The Cripple of Inishmaan Backstage Tour now has an extended video on the Cripple of Inishmaan Youtube page. Scans were also added from TV and Satellite Week Magazine, which you can view in our gallery.
