Here are a couple pics of film and stage actor Daniel Radcliffe making his way out of the New York Times Center building in NYC yesterday (as he was mobbed by throngs of awaiting fans) after sitting down with the newspaper to do an interview about his upcoming stint on Broadway in the play Equus:
On Tuesday, August 19, 2008 Daniel Radcliffe, soon to make his Broadway debut in Equus, participated in the New York Times’ Times Talks Seminar Series. Press notes described the event as, “Daniel Radcliffe: Screen to Broadway Stage, From the boy wizard in the “Harry Potter” films and Rudyard Kipling’s ill-fated son in the TV drama “My Boy Jack,” to the disturbed teenager in the London and Broadway revivals of Peter Schaffer’s play Equus, Daniel Radcliffe is an actor of diverse talents. He discussed his upcoming Broadway debut in the drama,which starts previews on September 5, and also how he’s been able to move from screen to stage so seamlessly.” Daniel Radcliffe was interviewed at the sold out event by Julie Bosman, New York Times culture reporter. Equus begins preview performances on Broadway on September 5th prior to opening night on September 25. Equus will play a strictly limited engagement through February 8, 2009.
You may have heard that Warner Bros. studios has decided to push back the next Harry Potter film, The Half-Blood Prince, from this Fall to next Summer … most likely because they didn’t want their basically innocent kid’s film competing with Daniel‘s racy Broadway run (which starts next month) and features the lad completely nude on stage … nightly. Makes sense. I imagine Dan will be staying in NYC for the time being, he’s sure to have stage preparations and rehearsals to get thru before his first preview show on Sept. 5 (David and I are going to the Sept. 15th preview performance). Let the fun times commence!
