Trust is the key to many successful productions, whether it's in film or onstage. But it's integral in Daniel Radcliffe and Josh McGuire's new revival of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, which will take place in London, England, and be screening in over 2,500 theatres around the world (including North America) on Thursday, April 20. 

"It's only Dan and I onstage; he's the one person I rely on and trust," McGuire says. Radcliffe adds, "We're very lucky to be doing this play together." 

Today on the show, Radcliffe and McGuire discuss their working relationship, how their careers have found some strange parallels and the timeless work of Tom Stoppard.
