This fall, Broadway-goers will get a chance to see both Harry Potter and Harry Potter.

Daniel Radcliffe, who played the boy wizard in the J.K. Rowling franchise, will return to Broadway in The Lifespan of a Fact, co-starring Bobby Cannavale and Cherry Jones. Leigh Silverman will direct.

The show will begin performances on September 20 and will officially open on October 18. It will face-off against the Tony-nominated play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, which picks up 19 years from where Rowling’s last novel left off and portrays Potter and his friends as grown-ups.

The Lifespan of a Fact centres on the investigation of a Las Vegas teen’s suicide. Radcliffe’s Broadway credits include Equus, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and The Cripple of Inishmaan.
