Daniel Radcliffe Returns to Broadway; Michael Cera to Make His Debut This Fall

While we admittedly don’t go to as many Broadway shows as we’d like, there are always a few can’t-miss shows each year!

First is Daniel Radcliffe in “The Cripple of Inishmaan,” which is currently in previews.  We were majorly impressed with Daniel in both “How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” and “Equus,” and are so excited to see him back on Broadway!   You can tell he loves it, too – he always gives a passionate performance, feeding off the crowd’s energy.  While it’s difficult for some to make the leap from film to theatre, you can tell Dan is truly a theatre actor – he’s most in his element and it’s wonderful to see.  “The Cripple of Inishmaan” received rave reviews during its London run last year, and we’re looking forward to seeing this dark comedy!  (Although full disclosure, we’d go see Daniel Radcliffe in any play or musical he signs up for.)

Tickets for “The Cripple of Inishmaan” are on sale now!  The play has a strict 14-week run, so don’t miss your chance to catch one of Broadway’s best.

The Hollywood Reporter announced last week that Michael Cera will be making his Broadway debut this fall, in “This Is Our Youth.”  The revival of the 1966 play will also star Kieran Culkin and teenage fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson, of Rookie.  Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij will compose original music for the show!  We’re big Michael Cera fans over here, from his days as George Michael Bluth and movies like “Superbad” and “Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist,” and are looking forward to seeing him on stage.

The play was a great success in a previous London run, where the cast featured actors such as Hayden Christensen, Freddie Prinze Jr, Colin Hanks and Jake Gyllenhaal.

“This Is Our Youth” will open on September 11th at New York’s Cort Theatre with a limited 20-week run.  Previews start on August 18th.  Stay tuned for ticket info!
