Daniel Radcliffe: Equus Rehearsals Under Way!
Harry Poter star Daniel Radcliffe enters Broadhurst Theatre in New York City early Sunday morning to rehearse for his new play Equus.
Radcliffe plays the disturbed Alan Strang, a seemingly normal 17-year-old who is fascinated by horses but inexplicably blinds six of them. The play, which has Radcliffe naked by the end of the play, tries to understand why.
“Offended mothers were calling up and saying I shouldn’t be doing this, that they weren’t going to go see it,” Radcliffe admitted recently. “OK, don’t see it. They’re treating it like it’s pornography, and it’s not. It’s only seven minutes at the end of the play when I’m naked, and I’m 19 now.”
This will be Radcliffe‘s Broadway debut. Previews start this Friday and opens Sept. 25.
