According to MTV News, Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe will headline the Broadway version of the smash London revival of Equus with his West End castmate, Richard Griffiths.
“In all probability, if everything goes according to plan, it would definitely be me and Richard Griffiths and how many other cast members the unions will allow,” Radclife told MTV. He expects the Broadway production will begin performances “late next year.” “I’m excited,” he added, “terrified, but excited.”
Producers announced April 20 that the hit London show — which played its final performance at London’s Gielgud Theatre June 9 — would head to Broadway in spring 2008, followed by an Australian production.
No casting or official dates for the New York run were announced, but reports previously noted Radcliffe and Griffiths agreed to a May or June 2008 transfer.
