Television, film star, and soon-to-be Oscar host Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) will hit the stage this summer in a production of Peter Shaffer’s drama Equus. Baldwin will play the role of psychiatrist Martin Dysart in the production, which will play at Guild Hall in East Hampton, New York from June 8 to July 3. Baldwin is no stranger to the stage, having been on Broadway in A Streetcar Named Desire, and Off-Broadway in productions of Entertaining Mr. Sloane, Macbeth, and Prelude to a Kiss.
The magic is gone now that Harry Potter‘s Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths have taken their final bows in the Broadway run of Equus. This production of Peter Shaffer’s intense psychological play, which enjoyed a successful run in London previously, marked Radcliffe’s Broadway debut and earned the young actor much acclaim.
The Broadway revival of Equus opens tonight at the Broadhurst Theatre. The production, starring Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths (both best known from the Harry Potter franchise), comes to Broadway following a successful run in London. This limited Broadway run of Equus, scheduled to play through February 8, marks Radcliffe’s Broadway debut and Griffiths return to the Great White Way – he first appeared on Broadway in The History Boys (playing a role won him a Tony Award).
It’s now official that Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter films, will be coming to Broadway later this year in Equus. Radcliffe will reprise the role of Alan Strang, which he played to acclaim earlier this year in London’s West End. His co-star, Richard Griffiths, will also join the Broadway cast of the production.
