Harry Potter aka Daniel Radcliffe Will Be on Broadway While Harry Potter is on Broadway


You know, Harry Potter is on Broadway now as a play — “Harry and Potter and the Cursed Child.” It will likely win some Tony Awards on Sunday.

So just to be confusing, “Harry” is coming to Broadway this fall. Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry in the eight movies, is returning to the stage in a new play come October. “The Lifespan of a Fact” is written by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell, directed by Leigh Silverman.

Three playwrights? Very unusual. They adapted it from a book of the same name byby John D’Agata and Jim Fingal about a fact checker and the writer of a magazine article.

More good news: Bobby Cannavale and Cherry Jones co-star. Well, you can’t do better than that.

The sixteen week engagement is at the Roundabout/Studio 54.
