B'way Update: Radcliffe and 'Titanic' Return to B'way

This is a busy afternoon for Broadway with news that Daniel Radcliffe and Titanic are returning and lots more . First came the announcement that Roundabout Theatre Company will be presenting the NY premiere of Tom Stoppard's India Ink in their Off-Broadway Laura Pels space and a Broadway revival of the riotous farce Noises Off, both next season. Then we heard that Titanic will be sailing back to New York after a run in Toronto (this is a small-scale production which was a big hit in London last year). Just as I was ready to call it a day, another press release popped in my email proclaiming Daniel Radcliffe will star in a revival of Martin McDonagh's The Cripple of Inishmaan at the Cort, opening on April 20--the same night as Violet at the American Airlines--just in time for the Tonys. (Cripple has been staged Off-Broadway in 1998 and 2009.) This production was seen in London last June with the Harry Potter star who will be repeating his performance along with the British cast. But that leads me to speculate, where will The Realistic Joneses go now? The Will Eno comedy-drama with four stars has announced its opening date (April 6) but not the theater.  Here's an updated list of the season:
