Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, and Bobby Cannavale Open in The Lifespan of a Fact
Leigh Silverman directs the new Broadway play at Studio 54.
Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, and Bobby Cannavale return to Broadway tonight as The Lifespan of a Fact opens at Studio 54. The production will play a limited 16-week engagement.
Based on the book of the same name by John D'Agata and Jim Fingal, The Lifespan of a Fact is written by Jeremy Karekan, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell, directed by Leigh Silverman, and is described as follows: "The determined young fact checker (Daniel Radcliffe) is about to stir up trouble. The demanding editor (Cherry Jones) has given him a big assignment: apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by the unorthodox author (Bobby Cannavale). Together, they take on the high-stakes world of publishing in this new comedy of conflict. The ultimate showdown between fact and fiction is about to begin — with undeniably delicious consequences."
The production features scenic design by Mimi Lien, costume design by Linda Cho, lighting design by Jen Schriever, sound design by Palmer Hefferan, and projection design by Lucy Mackinnon.
