Huge news Harry Potter fans: Daniel Radcliffe will be returning to the London stage this year for an extended run.
It’s definitely not for West End smash Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but Daniel has lined up an exciting starring role in The Old Vic’s revival of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Digital Spy said.
Daniel will star with The Hour’s Joshua McGuire as the bumbling title characters, who you’ll surely remember for their embarrassing exploits in a little play called Hamlet, Digital Spy said.
Playwright Tom Stoppard’s revolutionary reinvention of these two minor characters has been thrilling audiences worldwide for the last 50 years, so now’s the perfect time for a revival.
Directing this version of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead will be David Leveaux, who has previously worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company, as well as on Broadway with The Glass Menagerie, Nine and Closer (among many others).
Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead is currently scheduled to run from Saturday, February 25 through Saturday, April 29 at The Old Vic in celebration of its 50th anniversary. For ticket info, click here.
If you can’t make it The Old Vic, don’t fret. This very special revival will beamed live to cinemas on April 20 as part of National Theatre Live, Digital Spy said.
Radcliffe is a veteran of the stage at just 27 years old, having first made waves in Equus and later for his critically-acclaimed performances in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and The Cripple of Inishmaan.
