Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, and Bobby Cannavale return to Broadway in the world premiere of Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell’s The Lifespan of a Fact, which is based on the essay/book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal. Check out the rave reviews:
- “TERRIFICALLY ENGAGING & FASCINATING. With its cast, its dead-on timing, its terrific comic staging by Leigh Silverman, its perfect set by Mimi Lien and sound design by Palmer Hefferan, it would probably nail its laughs even without the dialogue. It’s what you call a good time.” The New York Times
- “A RIB-BUSTINGLY FUNNY PLAY! A smart, well-wrought stage comedy. The acting is letter-perfect. Daniel Radcliffe is exceptional. Cherry Jones and Bobby Cannavale are two of Broadway’s best performers – as good as it’s possible to be.” The Wall Street Journal
- “BRISKLY ENTERTAINING AND BRACINGLY ACTED. You’ll find yourself happy to have your preconceptions disturbed and assumptions unsettled.” The Washington Post
- “GIVES YOU THE SATISFYING RUSH of a good mystery or a crossword puzzle – in a way that’s both invigorating and unsettling.” New York Magazine
- “THE LAUGHS ARE EXPLOSIVE IN THIS CRACKERJACK NEW PLAY. Ingenious, entertaining and truly scintillating! The never-better Daniel Radcliffe is a real revelation – you can’t take your eyes off him! Director Leigh Silverman keeps her foot on the accelerator. Bobby Cannavale is hilarious.” The Hollywood Reporter
“DANIEL RADCLIFFE IS A MASTER OF COMEDY.” Variety
- “CHERRY JONES IS AS COMMANDING AS EVER.” Deadline
- “A RIVETING, HIGHLY PROVACATIVE PLAY. I wish it a long and healthy lifespan of its own. Daniel Radcliffe is perfection. Bobby Cannavale has a compelling dynamic. Cherry Jones is terrific.” NY1
- “4 STARS! AN ENTERTAINING PLAY ABOUT THE STORIES WE TELL.” TimeOut NY
Radcliffe plays Fingal, whose job it is to fact check articles for one of the best magazines in the country. Fingal’s boss, played by Jones, has given him an assignment: Apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by legendary author John D’Agata, played by Cannavale. And now, Fingal has a huge problem: John made up the majority of his article.
Radcliffe is a three-time Drama Desk nominee for his Broadway performances in Equus, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and The Cripple of Inishmaan. Jones is a two-time Tony winner for her work in The Heiress and Doubt. Cannavale was Tony-nominated for his roles in Mauritius and The Motherfu**er with the Hat.
