Previews for “Equus” Starring Dan Radcliffe To Begin September 5
Apr 09, 2008
As many of you know, actor Dan Radcliffe is set to reprise his role in the play “Equus”, when the production begins here in the US this fall. Confirmed dates for the play have now been announced, with previews to begin on September 5, and the play to formally open on Broadway September 25th. The Broadhurst Theatre in New York City will be the site of the play, which is set for a limited 22 week run through February 8, 2009. According to Playbill, tickets will “go on sale to American Express Gold Card members April 12 at 9 AM ET by calling (212) 239-6200 or by visiting www.telecharge.com.”
As reported previously, Dan Radcliffe will be joined by Richard Griffiths (Uncle Vernon), who appeared with Dan in the hit London production of the play last year. Thea Sharrock, who directed the London production of the play, will assume directing duties for the play here on Broadway as well. You can see some photos of Dan in this play here in our galleries. A reminder that “Equus” is a very serious drama, dealing with a boy who undergoes therapy after blinding six horses. This play contains mature subject matter, with nudity and sexual themes in the play.
