Daniel Radcliffe -- the young star of Peter Shaffer's play EQUUS on Broadway (Broadhurst Theatre, 235 W. 44 St.) -- will appear on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" tonight, Monday, January 12 on NBC-TV. ("Late Night" is seen locally in the NYC metropolitan area at 12:35 a.m. on WNBC-TV/Newschannel 4.)
Tonight's appearance with Conan O'Brien marks Mr. Radcliffe's second appearance on "Late Night..." to talk about his celebrated Broadway turn in EQUUS: Mr. Radcliffe first appeared prior to his Broadway debut in August 2008 when EQUUS was in rehearsals in New York for its Broadway run. (That program rebroadcast recently on Dec. 30, 2008.)
EQUUS will conclude its 22-week engagement as scheduled on Broadway on February 8th, 2009. The play opened in September 2008 at the Broadhurst Theatre, marking the Broadway debut of Daniel Radcliffe. Mr. Radcliffe stars in the revival of Peter Shaffer's play opposite Tony Award winner Richard Griffiths ("The History Boys"). Thea Sharrock directs this production, which marks EQUUS first time on Broadway since its debuted and won the Tony Award for Best Play 35 years ago.
Daniel Radcliffe is the internationally-renowned star of the "Harry Potter" films and will begin shooting the final "Harry Potter" movie shortly after concluding his Broadway run in EQUUS, in which he made his much-heralded Broadway debut, followed by considerable acclaim.
EQUUS is Peter Shaffer's play about a mild-mannered young stable boy (Radcliffe) who blinds six horses in his care, and what happens when a court-appointed psychiatrist (Griffiths) attempts to unravel the mystery behind the boys demonic act.
EQUUS performs Tuesdays at 7 pm, Wednesdays at 2 and 8 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays at 8 pm, Saturdays at 2 pm and 8 pm and Sundays at 3 p.m.
