NEW YORK (AP) — Producers of Terrence McNally's Broadway-bound revival of "It's Only a Play" have added a little "Harry Potter" magic — Rupert Grint.
Grint, who played Ron Weasley in the Potter film franchise, will make his Broadway debut alongside Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Stockard Channing, Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham and Emmy winner Megan Mullally.
The revival will play the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and opening night is Oct. 9.
"It's Only a Play," which previously appeared off-Broadway in 1986, is a send-up of show business. It is set on the eve of a play's opening night and its anxious playwright has to deal with Broadway show business types as they await the first reviews.
Grint made his West End Debut in the 2013 revival of Jez Butterworth's "Mojo."
