Daniel Radcliffe has emerged as one of the finest stage actors around. And he proves his chops in the title role of Martin McDonagh’s 1997 dramedy The Cripple of Inishmaan, now on Broadway after a successful London run last year. Director Michael Grandage calibrates the humor and the heart of one of McDonagh’s best-crafted works, which introduces a roster of familiar Irish provincials and then finds crafty and hilarious ways to subvert our expectations and preconceived notions about them. It’s one of the finest revivals in recent memory. Check out my straight-A review on EW.com
