Daniel Radcliffe is making a comeback on Broadway and will be starring alongside Cherry Jones and Bobby Cannavale in a new play called ‘The Lifespan of a Fact’.
The play, The Lifespan of a Fact, will be about a thought-provoking and thrilling battle between a writer and a fact-checker. It is to be adapted from a 2012 book, with the same name, by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal. The book revolves around the torturing art of editing a magazine essay on a 2002 suicide of a Las Vegas teenager.
28-year-old Daniel Radcliffe will play the role of the fact-checker name Jim Fingal, while Bobby Cannavale will play the character of the essayist, John D’Agata. Cherry Jones will play the role of Daniel’s character’s boss in the play. The play will be directed by Leigh Silverman, who will work with Jeffrey Richards, Deanna Twain and Will Trice as the lead producers.
The play will open on October 18, with its previews starting as early as September 20. The Lifespan of a Fact will be performed for sixteen weeks at Studio 54.
