Rupert Grint To Make Broadway Debut in 'It's Only A Play' This Fall

Like we needed another reason to go see some shows on Broadway, but this just adds to our excitement.

Rupert Grint will be taking over the Broadway stage for It’s Only A Play. reports that the 25-year-old actor will make his debut alongside Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Stockard Channing, F. Murray Abraham and Megan Mullally. Nice!

Rupert shared in a statement: “I’m thrilled to be making my Broadway debut alongside this amazing cast and creative team.”

It’s Only a Play is set on the opening night of Broderick‘s character Peter Austin’s 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 (Lane), his fledgling producer (Mullally), his erratic leading lady (Channing), his acclaimed young director director (Grint), an infamous drama critic, and a wide-eyed coat check attendant on his first night in Manhattan. There’s no business like show business.

The play will officially open at the Schoenfeld Theatre on October 9th.
