The Cripple of Inishmaan Comes to Broadway
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Irish playwright Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan isn’t even 20-years-old, but the play is already getting its third New York production. The latest does have a couple of special characteristics. The play is being presented for the first time in a Broadway house at the Court Theatre and leading the cast — and, presumably, the tourist-ticket trade — is Daniel Radcliffe, best known as the big screen Harry Potter.
So, besides that, what does this production have going for it? Well, a couple of good things, says New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood.
