Some fine acting chops displayed by Mr Potter in the Revival of "Equus"

The current revival of "Equus" now playing at the Broadhurst Theatre and starring Daniel Radcliffe(AKA Harry Potter) and Richard Griffiths is a wonderful piece of theatre that should be seen. It's a bizarre and haunting play that stays with you well after you leave the theater. I wasn't expecting Mr. Radcliffe to be so emotionally and deeply involved in his character as he was. He gives a commanding and very powerful performance that come Tony time, he may very well get a nomination and perhaps even win the darn thing! I give him a lot of credit for taking on such a difficult role for his Broadway debut. It also takes a lot of chutzpah to stand up there in your birthday suite for what amounts to be a good 10 minutes. He's a brave one and has nothing to be ashamed of!! Mr. Griffiths offers a subdued performance, almost taking a back seat to Daniel's character to make the show his own. The supporting cast are all fine including the terrific Kate Mulgrew. This is a limited run and already has a large advance sale.
Call Applause Theatre Service now at 800-451-9930 to get this Hot, Hot ticket.
