Rupert Grint heading to Broadway in “It’s Only a Play”!

RupertNewsIconJune 17th, 2014, 12:30pm– Entertainment Weekly is reporting the most exciting news of the year – Rupert Grint will make his Broadway debut this October in the play “It’s Only a Play”. Rupert joins an all-star cast including Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Stockard Channing and Megan Mullally, it will be directed by Jack O’Brien.

The play will run for a limited 17 weeks and open at Broadway’s Schoenfeld Theatre on October 9th. How excited are you about this news??

Here’s a synopsis – Rupert will play the character Frank Finger:

It’s opening night of Peter Austin’s (Matthew Broderick) new play as he anxiously awaits to see if his show is a hit. With his career on the line, he shares his big First Night with his best friend, a television star (Nathan Lane), his fledgling producer (Megan Mullally), his erratic leading lady (Stockard Channing), his wunderkind director (Rupert Grint), an infamous drama critic (F. Murray Abraham) and a fresh-off-the-bus coat check attendant (Micah Stock in his Broadway debut).

It’s alternately raucous, ridiculous and tender — reminding audiences why there’s no business like show business. Thank God!

We will update as soon as more news comes out about this, when we get official confirmation from Rupert’s reps as well as ticket information.
