Stars Ask the Stars at the Opening Night of The Lifespan of a Fact

Find out what the celebrity guests of Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, and Bobby Cannavale had on their minds.

Broadway's The Lifespan of a Fact follows a determined young fact checker (Daniel Radcliffe), a demanding editor (Cherry Jones), and an unorthodox essayist as they butt heads about where the line should be drawn between fact and fiction. Based on a 2012 book of the same name by John D'Agata and Jim Fingal, the play hits on issues that are at the forefront of our current political discussions despite having been published four years before the fateful 2016 presidential election. As Radcliffe, Jones, and Cannavale's guests walked the opening-night red carpet before the show, they gave us their questions — ranging from the political to the personal — for the cast and creative team.
