Daniel Radcliffe is putting down Harry Potter's wand to take on the role of Billy Claven in the new Broadway production of Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan, which opens at the Cort Theatre this weekend. Unfortunately, he'll also have to set aside the tap shoes he wore when he was last on Broadway playing J. Pierrepont Finch in the 2011 revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Fortunately, however, there's ample video documentation. Watch the clip below to reminisce about those days when the talented Brit sang and danced like no one knew The Boy Who Lived could.
