Daniel Radcliffe To Return To Broadway In The Lifespan Of A Fact

The Lifespan of a FactWho would have thought that Harry Potter himself would end up becoming a Broadway star? And no I'm not talking about the mega hit Tony Award winner Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two. I am of course talking about actor Daniel Radcliffe, who is making his fourth appearance on the Great White Way in the last ten years.

Now here is again for the first time since 2014, where he will star in the new play in The Lifespan Of A Fact. Starring along side Mr. Radcliffe is Tony and Emmy Award winner Cherry Jones, and Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Bobby Cannavale. Now besides being based on a true story, it is unique for the fact that the show is authored not by one, but three playwrights.

Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell and Gordon Farrell. Previews are set to begin at Studio 54 on September 20 with opening night scheduled for October 18. The show, which runs an hour and thirty-five minutes with no intermission is set to close on January 13. Tickets for the eagerly anticipated play are now on sale.

Broadway Bound Production Of Tootsie Finds A Home

Let's be honest. We all have our favorite films. I personally, have quite the list. Now my favorite movie of all time is "The Shawshank Redemption". Great movie right? After that, is "Mr. Holland's Opus", and coming in at third, is what I think is the greatest comedy of all time. Care to guess what it is theatre fans?

That's right. It's none other than Tootsie. Released in late 1982, and nominated for ten Academy Awards including Best Picture of the Year, Tootsie starred Academy Award winner Dustin Hoffman as the talented, yet neurotic actor Michael Dorsey, who transforms himself into actress Dorothy Michaels. Now here we are thirty-six years later, and my favorite comedy of all time is headed to the Broadway stage.

Santino Fontana and Dustin Hoffman in <i>Tootsie</i>
Well not right away. First, it is making a pit stop at the Cadillac Theatre in Chicago from September 11 thru October 19. Previews for the Broadway production are set to begin a the Marquis Theatre on March 29, 2019, with opening night scheduled for April 23.

Directed by eight-time Tony Award nominee Scott Ellis (She Loves Me, 1776, You Can't Take It With You), and choreographed by Tony Award nominee Denis Jones (Holiday Inn, Honeymoon In Vegas), Tootsie stars Tony Award nominee Santino Fontana as Michael Dorsey/Dorothy Michaels, Lily Cooper as Julia Nichols (SpongeBob SquarePants), Sarah Stiles as Sandy Lester, John Behlmann as Max Van Horn, Andy Grotelueschen as Jeff Slater, Julie Halston as Rita Marshall, Tony Award winner Michael McGrath as Stan Fields, and Reg Rogers as Ron Carlisle.

Tickets for the Chicago engagement are now on sale, with tickets for the Broadway production scheduled to go on sale in the coming months. Check back here for further updates. Get your tickets to see Tootsie at the Cadillac Theatre, and at the Marquis Theatre on Broadway next Spring. I can't wait. Until next time theatre fans.

New Musical The Prom Headed To The Great White Way

The PromShow of hands. Who here went to their Senior Prom? Sadly my hand is still at my side. Now don't feel sorry for me. It was my choice. Do I regret it? A little. But thankfully, there is a brand new musical coming to Broadway, that looks like just as fun as the real thing.

The Prom, which first premiered in 2016 at the Alliance Theatre in London, is set to begin previews at the Longacre Theatre on October 23, with opening night scheduled for November 15.

Starring Tony Award winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), and Tony nominees Christopher Seiber (Shrek), and Brooks Ashmanskas (Something Rotten), The Prom is sure to be a highlight of the Fall Broadway season. By the way, for those of you who want tickets to see the show, you have come to the right place. We sell it. In fact, we sell every new play and musical this season.
