Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones & Bobby Cannavale Reveal The Lifespan of a Fact on Broadway
marcie - Oct 20, 2018 Stage , The Lifespan of a Fact

The star-packed world premiere staging of The Lifespan of a Fact opens at Studio 54 on October 18. Tony nominee Leigh Silverman directs the Broadway production, which began previews on September 20. The three-person cast includes Daniel Radcliffe, two-time Tony winner Cherry Jones and two-time Tony nominee Bobby Cannavale.

Written by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell and Gordon Farrell, The Lifespan of a Fact follows Jim Fingal (Radcliffe), who has a small job: to fact-check articles for one of the best magazines in the country. His boss (Jones) has given him a big assignment: to apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by legendary author John D’Agata (Cannavale). But now Fingal has a huge problem: D’Agata made up a lot of his article. What starts professional quickly becomes profane.

In celebration of opening night, Broadway.com Resident Artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson sketched a portrait of the play’s trio of stars introducing a powerful new work to Broadway crowds.

Dan has two fantasy football teams and is bummed about Devonta Freeman

Every now and then, the football-loving folks of the world get confirmation that a celebrity loves football just like they do. Because celebrities are people, too — even the guy who played “Harry Potter” in all eight of those movies.

That guy’s name is Daniel Radcliffe, and on Thursday morning he did an interview on the MSNBC program “Morning Joe.” He was there to talk about his new play, but host Joe Scarborough couldn’t resist getting a little football talk in first. It turns out that Radcliffe, who is from London, is actually crazy about American football. He likes it so much that he even has two fantasy football teams, one in a league that he runs himself.

First Look at Bobby Cannavale, Cherry Jones, and Daniel Radcliffe in The Lifespan of a Fact

The Lifespan of a Fact, a new play by Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell, and directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman, started performances September 20 at Studio 54, ahead of an official opening October 18.

The cast is comprised of Bobby Cannavale, Cherry Jones, and Daniel Radcliffe, and is based on the true events surrounding John D’Agata’s essay “What Happens There” about the suicide of teenager Levi Presley. The play explores the quandary of what passes for truth in literary nonfiction, and features Cannavale as the writer D’Agata, Radcliffe as determined young fact-checker John Fingal, and Jones as his demanding boss Emily Penrose.

The creative team includes Mimi Lien (set design), Linda Cho (costume design), and Jennifer Schriever (lighting design).

Daniel Radcliffe and the Art of the Fact-Check
marcie - Oct 13, 2018 Dan News , Stage , The Lifespan of a Fact

Fact: the actor Daniel Radcliffe is currently starring in the Broadway show “The Lifespan of a Fact,” as a magazine fact checker with an aviation inspector’s zeal for accuracy. The play is drawn from a real-life skirmish: in 2005, Jim Fingal, an intern at The Believer, was tasked with fact-checking an essay by John D’Agata (played by Bobby Cannavale), about a teen suicide in Las Vegas. D’Agata had more of a watercolorist’s approach to the truth. When Fingal tried to correct his claim that Las Vegas had thirty-four licensed strip clubs—a source indicated that it was thirty-one—D’Agata said that he liked the “rhythm” of thirty-four. Their epistolary tussle was expanded into a book in 2012.

Not long ago, Radcliffe arrived at the offices of this magazine, wearing a maroon cap and a green jacket and clutching a latte. He had come to try his own hand at fact-checking, with the help of The New Yorker’s fact-checking department. Radcliffe had a few things to verify himself. Passing a wall displaying recent New Yorker covers, he said, “That makes me feel a lot better about our play. We’ve talked about whether an editor would have loads of covers in their office. I’m going to go back and say, ‘Yes.’ ”

He reported to the office of Peter Canby, the magazine’s head of fact-checking. “One of the flaws—maybe it isn’t a flaw—that my character has in the play is that he has no ability to differentiate between the things that matter and the things that don’t,” Radcliffe said. Canby, who had seen a preview, assured him that his character was spot-on, while allowing, “It’s not really a science. It’s more of an art.”

Then he put Radcliffe to work. They hunched over a soon-to-run review of Oxomoco, a Mexican restaurant in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The first step, Canby explained, was to underline all checkable facts. “Let’s crack on,” Radcliffe said, scanning the line “The dip itself was excellent, laced with chilies in adobo and cilantro and dressed up with cotija cheese and slightly smoky, lightly charred cherry tomatoes.” He underlined everything except “was excellent.”

Tom Felton and Daniel Radcliffe reunite at Daniel Radcliffe’s new Broadway play

Daniel Radcliffe is currently starring on Broadway in the new play The Lifespan of a Fact, and his former Potter costar Tom Felton — who played Draco Malfoy to Radcliffe’s Boy Who Lived — stopped by this week to support him.

Felton posted a photo to Instagram on Thursday that appears to be taken in Radcliffe’s dressing room at New York’s Studio 54. “Go see it,” the actor captioned the snapshot, calling Radcliffe’s work in the play “fantastic.”

Director Leigh Silverman Makes Theatrical History With Broadway’s The Lifespan of a Fact
marcie - Oct 7, 2018 Dan News , Stage , The Lifespan of a Fact

Can you accidentally make history? In the case of director Leigh Silverman—the first to assemble an all-female design team on Broadway—it’s a case of accidentally, on purpose, for The Lifespan of a Fact, currently running at Studio 54 with an official opening scheduled for October 18.

“I had no idea that it had never happened before,” says the Tony-nominated director of her latest project, the world premiere of Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell’s play. Inspired by real events, the play sees an author (Bobby Cannavale), his editor (Cherry Jones), and a fact checker (Daniel Radcliffe) locked in a debate about the nature of truth in literary nonfiction.
