We’ve just had word from Dan Radcliffe’s publicist that there’s been a change of plans for the New York run of “Equus,” slated to begin this September at the Shubert Theater in NYC. The last fifteen minutes of the play usually includes a pivotal scene by Radcliffe, in which his young troubled character reenacts the circumstances surrounding the blinding of six stable horses. The scene is usually played nude, but Radcliffe, responding to concerns raised by parents of young Potter fans when the show played in London’s the West End, has announced he has worked with the director to play the scene fully clothed instead.

WB said: “We support Mr. Radcliffe’s artistic decision. If he wants to perform fully clothed, we’d never stand in his way.”

More on this as we get it!

That’s okay with me. I just read Equus last night and have been trying to find out when tickets go on sale. But how is he gonna have sex with the girl with clothes on? Oh well. I’ll try to sit closer to the stage now. If this is a joke them i’ll sit farther back.

Avatar Image says:

Courteni love your comment!

Avatar Image says:

LOL! I LOVE the pic with the boxers! Totally classy! It needs to be bigger. Cracking me up here!

Avatar Image says:

D’oh, I believed it and was about to get all angry! But naughty naughty, you’re only supposed to make April Fool’s jokes before 12!!

Avatar Image says:

I don’t mind, I saw it in London. :D

Avatar Image says:

I really like Leaky’s April Fools jokes this year, I actually thought this post was true for about three minutes! I find the joke at Mugglenet rather rediculous, it’s not really funny.

Avatar Image says:

Yeah, sure!

Melissa, Happy April Fool’s Day to you too!

Avatar Image says:

haha and i even beleived it when a i first saw.Happy April Fool’s Leaky!!:D

Avatar Image says:

I always come here for the April 1 hoot, and I wasn’t disappointed! Thanks for the jollies, Melissa!

Avatar Image says:

LOL Nice one Leaky! What’s next, John “Janice” Noe has been selected as Dan’s understudy?

Avatar Image says:

Is this a joke? I didn’t think you were suppose to play April Fool’s stunts after 12pm?

Avatar Image says:

Oh gosh! This isn’t true ???? It seems so real…..

Avatar Image says:

LOL! april’s fool is not celebrated in my country, so I totally believed it for a second (now I come to think about it, it was completely stupid). good one!

Avatar Image says:

God I feel dumb…

Avatar Image says:

Why do I always fall for Leaky’s April Fool’s jokes At least in this case I fell for the headline but after reading further I knew what it was! loved the other ones too.

Avatar Image says:

Haha. I am never falling for one of these again, after last years terribly mean one that I cried over for, like, 10 minutes before realizing the date….

Nice try :-)

Avatar Image says:

HAH!! This one was really amusing. I didn’t fall for it this year but it was still great.

Avatar Image says:

Bluffing for April Fool’s Day again! I LOVE the boxers, they’re great!

Avatar Image says:

April Fools, Melvin! Way to keep your sunny side up after your very “sad pandas” podcast on Sunday. We love and admire you all, you Fab Four, you!

Avatar Image says:

I nearly believed the headline, but when I read the article it became quite clear that it’s April fools day, lol! Especially the last sentence gave it away :-)

And nice boxer shorts, lol!

Avatar Image says:

Ha ha Leaky on a roll this year, Pretty funny fool’s jokes.

Especially: WB said: “We support Mr. Radcliffe’s artistic decision. If he wants to perform fully clothed, we’d never stand in his way.” Bwahaaahaaa

Avatar Image says:

It’s just not funny to take Dan’s nudity away from us. (okay.. maybe it is a little funny) My sisters and I are planning a special, girls only, trip to NY just for this. I think I may have to torture my little sister and insist that this he realy will NOT be taking off his cloths. She’ll hate me when she finds out it isn’t true.

Avatar Image says:

ahahahahahah, the picture going with it was the best thing so far.

Avatar Image says:

I just had to say that I love this year’s April Fool’s jokes, Leaky! :D

Avatar Image says:

You got me for a second! :D

Avatar Image says:

::cancels NY plans in a huff::

Avatar Image says:

What? No HP boxers? The smiley faces are more suited to Fred and George, I think. Daniel needs boxers, with little “HP”s and the lightning scar logo sprinkled about.

Then those non-Potterheads can think it’s also a social commentary on Hewlett Packard and the electrical/electronic era, which drives the stableboy to madness…

Now, who’s fooling whom? ;-)

Avatar Image says:

hahaha, I actually believed this one for a minute.

Avatar Image says:

NOOOOO!!

Oh wait…

its April Fools..

Nevermind

: D

All is Well

Avatar Image says:

Awwwww. man now there’s no reason for me to see it….jk. but anyways, all these April fools jokes are cute. i always get soo confused though cause i can never tell what’s real and what’s fake. i’m too gullible. lol. but i hope dan is still gonna be naked. blushes

Avatar Image says:

OH MY GOSH, I feel like such a dumbass, I actually believed that until I read the other comments and saw everyone was talking about April Fools Day.

It actually wouldn’t be that shocking if that were to happen seeing that no offense that Americans are more weirded out by stuff like that, but I can’t believe I actually believed it. ha ha, nice joke:D

Avatar Image says:

either this is true, or this is a VERY deep april Fool’s joke, but since we cant just email his reps asking this, well just have to wait, nice photoshop, and check out another certain website April Fool’s as well

Avatar Image says:

Wow! Too bad for all of the H/H shippers! My husband told me this morning that he’d heard that Emma Watson would be joining Dan Radcliffe in Equus this fall in the role of his character’s girlfriend. We’ll see what tomorrow brings! ;)

Avatar Image says:

Heheeeee what a way to get the fangirls riled up! Awesome, you never disappoint! Leaky and Mugglenet’s April Fools jokes are like, the only thing cool about this day! :)

Avatar Image says:

Avatar Image says:

I’m no April fool : ] It isn’t a great photoshop, though, of the underpants ; ]

Avatar Image says:

That was so funny…especially the graphic!

Avatar Image says:

I actually believed this for a minute before I read all the comments!! LOL!! :-D

Avatar Image says:

Very funny Melissa! And the WB statement is just spot on too. But the smiley shorts slays them all. lol

Avatar Image says:

The picture alone made me laugh so hard I almost peed my pants!

Avatar Image says:

LOL! For a split second I was like NOOOOOOOO! I’m supposed to see it in September. I’m going to be cheated out of the play that it was intended to be! Then….slap head….yeah…it’s April Fool’s Day. I swore I would never fall for another prank again and what do you know? You guys rock.

Avatar Image says:

You almost gave me a heart attack LFMAO <3

Avatar Image says:

Wow, I feel really stupid now….I fell for it. Oh well, technically though, it’s April second while I’m reading it so I don’t have jokes on my mind…....................oh shut up, I’m just making excuses, I know. :)

Avatar Image says:

Lol!! You had me until the WB statement!

Avatar Image says:

That was mean. I was really expecting them to do it and was all like yay, my parents will let me go… then i read the comments and my bubble of hope popped. Thanks alot!

Avatar Image says:

Ha, i’m so gullible. I believed that till i saw the comments..

ah well. :) x
