Rupert Grint: It’s Only A Play Extended Until March 29th 2015!

It'sOnlyAPlayIcon2November 6th, 2014, 5:37pm– Tonight, it was announced that It’s Only a Play, with Rupert Grint playing director Frank Finger, will extend its run. Originally, the play was scheduled to close on January 4th 2015 but now the cast and crew have signed on for a short extension – the play will now close on March 29th 2015.

Martin Short will replace Nathan Lane after January 4th but the rest of the cast will continue to reprise their original roles. From January 7th (the first performance with Martin Short) and until January 18th the play will be housed at its current location, the Gerald Schoenfeld Theater, but from January 23 the play will transfer to its new home, the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater.

Although we’ll miss the amazing Nathan Lane, who is just perfect as James Wicker, we can’t wait to see how Rupert will interact with Martin Short – we can only imagine it’ll be absolutely hilarious.

UPDATE: There has been a lot of talk about whether or not Rupert will be a part of the extended run of It’s Only a Play. Rupert’s reps can’t confirm if he will continue in the play just yet, so we all need to cross our fingers that Rupert’s schedule will allow him to stay on until March 29.
But please note that nothing has been confirmed yet – we will of course update when we get official word on this.

Ha! I know, it’s pretty amazing working with all these geniuses. After Mojo ended, I didn’t want to do another play for a long time. It was fun but so exhausting. Then this came up and it was such an incredible cast, I had to do it.

It'sOnlyAPlayIcon2October 8th, 2014, 4:58pm– We are counting down the hours until the opening night of It’s Only a Play tomorrow where we will be getting loads of reports, interviews and new pictures of Rupert Grint. And what better way to spend the time than watching this amazing highlight reel of the play released by BroadwayWorld. It’s 6 minutes and 10 seconds of amazingness and this video really gives us a great impression of Rupert’s portrayal of Frank Finger.

What did you think of the highlight reel and how impressed are you with Rupert?

Playbill also asked the entire cast whether they read their reviews – here’s Rupert’s answer:

No. I don’t read them, no. I’m quite scared of them. I mean, the last play I did — it’s such a big thing… They have so much power as well, so it does scare me to read them. I just wait for the quotes that come up on the marquee. But, I think it’s a really interesting thing for an audience to witness…what it’s like for the creative people to read reviews and the tension and misery it could cause.

Remember to check back tomorrow, it’s going to be an exciting day!
