Contest: Win Tickets to The Cripple of Inishmaan

Update: The contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. I loved reading all your responses. The winner was picked at random from the entries here and on Twitter. Congratulations @lady_dayna!

If I had to pick one production that I'm most looking forward to this spring, it would be The Cripple of Inishmaan. I love Martin McDonagh, this play (I saw it at the Atlantic Theatre Company in 2008), and having Daniel Radcliffe on Broadway. So I'm really excited to have a pair of tickets to give away. And I'm going to be really jealous of whoever wins. Radcliffe plays Cripple Billy, who lives on the remote island of Inishmaan off the west coast of Ireland and wants to be in the movies.

In order to win a pair of tickets to a Tuesday through Thursday performance, you have a choice of one of two questions to answer in the comments. You can either tell me your favorite Martin McDonagh play or tell me which actor from the Harry Potter films you want to see on Broadway next. You can also tweet about the contest or retweet one of my tweets about it (if you enter this way, you must be following on Twitter to win). You can enter once each way for a total of two entries. A winner will be chosen at random from all the entries on Friday, March 7, at 6 p.m. Please include your e-mail address or Twitter handle in the comments so I have a way to contact you if you win. Good luck!

I know you said play, but my favorite work of Martin McDonagh is definitely the film "In Bruges"

And just for the hell of it, I'd love to see Emma Watson onstage next.

I would give anything to see Dame Maggie Smith on Broadway. and I'd be first to buy a plane ticket to London if she ends up performing on the West End.

I am eagerly awaiting Rupert Grint's Broadway debut. I think he'd be fantastic on stage, especially in a cemedy- he has great comedic timing!

Emma Watson! But I'd also love to see Rupert Grint on Broadway. And Emma Thompson, and Maggie Smith and Alan Rickman... etc etc etc!

The Beauty Queen of Leenane is my fave McDonagh (someone, please, revive it!), because I love a good nasty mother-daughter play.

Just for fun: I've seen Maggie Smith onstage (The Lady from Dubuque - she was amazing, naturally), so I'd want to see Rupert Grint, as I heard he was terrific in Mojo on the West End.

I'd like to see Tom Felton on stage. From his great work on screen to his great personality I think he'd be a fantastic pick.

Emma Watson. I want to see her in a Broadway production of The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

I would love to see Rupert Grint come to the stage here. I've seen some of his films outside of HP and he's quite fantastic.

I need to see Gary Oldman on stage at some point, either on Broadway or the West End (Or anywhere I'd still go).

I need to see Gary Oldman on stage. It can be Broadway, the West End, or some small town theater. I would be there.

Rupert Grint, please cross the pond. We'll treat you well.

Oh and Ralph Fiennes too please.

I think my favorite is probably The Lieutenant of Inishmore, although I do love The Cripple... too.

Wait, this is the THIRD time this play has been in NYC? I forgot about the Atlantic production entirely!

Anyway, I'll kill two birds with one stone and say Alan Rickman in Pillowman! Or just bring Emma Thompson's Mrs. Lovett to Broadway.

The Pillowman, although I'm a huge fan of In Bruges.

And I would give anything to see Emma Watson on stage.
