Here are a couple of new promo pics for the upcoming Broadway production of the London revival of Equus which starred/stars Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths. You may recall that Radcliffe and Griffiths appeared in the West End production of Equus last year and were met with much critical praise … starting next month, the duo bring the play to the Broadhurst Theatre here in NYC:
Richard Griffiths and Daniel Radcliffe, who starred in the London revival of Equus, are set to reprise their work in the upcoming Broadway production of Peter Shaffer’s award-winning play. Director Thea Sharrock again directs the production, which will arrive at Broadway’s Broadhurst Theatre Sept. 5. The show will open Sept. 25 for a strictly limited 22-week engagement through Feb. 8, 2009. In Equus, “psychiatrist Martin Dysart (Tony Award winner Richard Griffiths) investigates the blinding of six horses, a savage act committed by a mild-mannered stable boy, Alan Strange (Daniel Radcliffe), whose home life is filled with bigotry and religious fervor,” show notes explain. “As Dysart reveals the mysteries behind the boy’s demons, he realizes he is confronting his own.” Joining Griffiths and Radcliffe in the Broadway production will be stage and screen actress Kate Mulgrew.
Hopefully there will be a few more promo pics released for this newest production of the show, back when Equus opened in London we were treated to a whole slew of hawt pix of Danny boy in various states of undress. I am very much looking forward to seeing this show, finally, for myself. Not only am I … intrigued … by the notion of so much nekkidness in a major Broadway play like this but I am such a huge fan of Kate Mulgrew. She played Capt. Kathryn Janeway on Star Trek: Voyager and I have loved her ever since. I have a couple of amazing seats for the September 15th show so I am very, very excited. Woot!
