Very happy that the production of The Cripple of Inishmaan directed by Michael Grandage has opened at the Cort Theatre on Broadway, New York. Following a sell out run in London’s West End last year I’m thrilled to be working on the production again, which stars Daniel Radcliffe and Sarah Greene (who was nominated for an Olivier for the role).
The reviews have been overwhelmingly positive…
“Set and costume designer Christopher Oram creates vivid images of human life as it’s lived on this limestone rock in the middle of the sea. Hearing the crashing waves and the eerie cries of seabirds and the mournful folk music supplied by composer and sound designer Alex Baranowski, it’s easy to understand how the intolerable loneliness of the place has worked its way into Billy’s bones.” (Variety)
“Judging by the reviews, designer Christopher Oram and composer Alex Baranowski could well feature alongside Grandage and Radcliffe when the Tony nominations are announced next week.” (The Guardian)
I’ve already posted snippets of the score after the London run, which also can be heard here –
