    After a sold-out run in the West End, the critically acclaimed production of “The Cripple of Inishmaan” starring Daniel Radcliffe will open at Broadway's Cort Theatre this spring.

    Previews begin April 12 with an official opening on April 20. The production will play a strictly limited run through July 20.

    Michael Grandage, who staged the production in London, directs the Martin McDonagh play, which itself is making its Broadway debut (previous productions in 1998 and 2009 occurred Off Broadway, at The Public Theater and the Atlantic Theater, respectively). The West End cast will also transfer with the production.

    “The Cripple of Inishmaan” tells the story of young boy named Billy (Daniel Radcliffe), who dreams of breaking free of his poor, stagnant life on the remote island of Inishmaan (off the west coast of Ireland) and achieving Hollywood stardom in a film that’s being made on a neighboring island.

    This will be Radcliffe’s third time on Broadway. The “Harry Potter” star previously led revivals of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” (2011) and “Equus” (2008).

    Tickets start at $27 and go on sale Friday, Jan. 17 at www.Telecharge.com or by calling 212-239-6200.
