2 Harry Pot­ters to ap­pear on Broad­way

Albany Times Union - Sunday - - NEWS -

This fall, Broad­way-go­ers will get a chance to see both Harry Pot­ter and “Harry Pot­ter.”

Daniel Rad­cliffe ,who played the boy wizard in the J.K. Rowl­ing fran­chise, will re­turn to Broad­way in “The Lifes­pan of a Fact,” costar­ring Bobby Can­navale and Cherry Jones. Leigh Sil­ver­man will di­rect.

The show will be­gin per­for­mances Sept. 20 and will of­fi­cially open Oct. 18. It will face off against the Tonynom­i­nated play “Harry Pot­ter and the Cursed Child,” which picks up 19 years from where Rowl­ing’s last novel left off and por­trays Pot­ter and his friends as grown-ups.

“The Lifes­pan of a Fact” cen­ters on the in­ves­ti­ga­tion of a Las Ve­gas teen’s sui­cide. Rad­cliffe’s Broad­way cred­its in­clude “Equus,” “How to Suc­ceed in Busi­ness With­out Re­ally Try­ing” and “The Crip­ple of Inish­maan.”
