Martin McDonagh back on Broadway with Michael Grandage production of THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN

For the first time in four years, the ass kicker of modern Irish theatre is back on New York’s Great White Way. That’s John Michael McDonagh‘s little brother Martin, who’s written a few plays you may have heard of.

The Michael Grandage Company production of McDonagh’s sharp (if less gruesome than his usual standard) THE CRIPPLE OF INISHMAAN opened tonight at the Cort Theater, and yes, He Did Like It (NYT review).

It helps that a certain Harry Potter star is inhabiting the role of Cripple Billy.
