“THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT” is running at Studio 54 until January 13. The production stars Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, and Bobby Cannavale. Written by Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell, the play is directed by Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman. “THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT” is based on the book written by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal. In the play, a determined young fact checker (Radcliffe) is about to stir up trouble. A demanding editor (Jones) has given him a big assignment: apply his skill to a groundbreaking piece by an unorthodox author (Cannavale). In this new comedy of conflict, they take on the high-stakes world of publishing. The ultimate showdown between fact and fiction is about to begin – with undeniably delicious consequences.
