Equus is a play that was written in 1973 by Peter Shaffer about a young man who has a pathological fascination with horses and gets treated by a psychiatrist. The 2007 London revival has been transferred to Broadway at the Broadhurst Theatre, running until February 8th, 2009. The play didn’t do so well however, even after their attempts at email ticket promotions and discounts.

In this broadway revival, Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths played the two main roles, which attracted a lot of press attention seeing as they both play in the “Harry Potter” movies and there was some controversy about a nudity scene Radcliffe had to do.
