I’m still wondering how Mr. Radcliffe can have learned to dance decently enough for Broadway if he’s got some sort of spatial/movement-related learning disability, as he has previously stated. Once the reviews are in, it would be a service to other people who suffer from the same disorder if he would go into greater detail how he is overcoming his limitations.
WeenyOwl, it’s called dispraxia, but he said his condition is very mild. But I agree it’s very admirable all he has worked to be prepared to do a musical, taking singing and dancing lessons for years, and at the same time he worked filming the HP films… He worked very hard for Equus too and he was terrific.
I think he is an example for everyone, with or without limitations.
I really want to see this, I hope that it is good, even if it isn’t I’d still want to see it just to see Dan singing and dancing !…. @WeenyOwl, I agree about him letting us know how he overcame his spatial disabilities :)
