You have four weeks left to see Daniel Radcliffe in Martin McDonagh’s The Cripple of Inishmaan – but if you need a primer of what to expect, look no further.
Just below, EW has exclusive video of
Harry Potter Radcliffe winding (not wanding) through the corridors of the Cort Theatre. You’ll see the seaside ship that occupies much of the foreground of Act I, the country store with yards and yards of canned peas – including the oft-mentioned Fripple Frapple candies that gangly townie Bartley (Conor MacNeill) harps on through the play – and a rather large and worrisome peephole, which has gotten the cast in trouble on a few occasions. DanRad also checks in on his Tony-nominated costar Sarah Greene, who plays the fire-haired and equally fire-breathing Helen – a woman who tortures the locals, including Radcliffe’s Cripple Billy. Thankfully, Greene is much kinder in real life than her character is. Our young star even lets us into his dressing room, where we learn what former Cort tenant Ian McKellen left for him – as well as why Cripple Billy is so in love with cows.
