Photo Coverage: EQUUS Opening Night Curtain Call and After Party

Equus officially opened on Broadway last night, September 25th, after beginning previews on September 5.  BroadwayWorld.com's cameras were there as the cast took their first official bow together and then celebrated at New York City's Pier 66.

Equus reunites the two stars of the wildly successful "Harry Potter" films:  Daniel Radcliffe, who portrays the brilliant young wizard, Harry Potter, and Richard Griffiths, who appears as Harry's Uncle Vernon Dursley. Mr. Griffiths was last seen on Broadway in 2006 when he won the Tony Award for Best Actor for "The History Boys."

Mr. Griffiths and Mr. Radcliffe starred together in Equus during its acclaimed engagement in London's West End last year. Kate Mulgrew is also featured in the cast of Equus on Broadway. 

In Equus, psychiatrist Martin Dysart investigates the blinding of six horses, a savage act committed by a mild-mannered stable boy, Alan Strang, whose home life is filled with bigotry and religious fervor.  As Dysart reveals the mysteries behind the boy's demons, he realizes he is confronting his own.

Directed by Thea Sharrock, Equus is produced on Broadway by The Shubert Organization and Elizabeth Ireland McCann, Roger Berlind, John Gore, Hirschfeld Productions, Bill Kenwright, Emily Fisher Landau, Arielle Tepper Madover, Peter May, Chase Mishkin and Spring Sirkin.

Joining the previously announced Richard Griffiths, Daniel Radcliffe and Kate Mulgrew in Equus are Anna Camp, Carolyn McCormick, Lorenzo Pisoni, T. Ryder Smith, Graeme Malcolm and Sandra Shipley, along with Collin Baja, Tyrone Jackson, Spencer Liff   

Equus performance schedule is as follows: Tuesdays at 7 p.m., Wednesdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays at 8 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Equus will play a strictly limited engagement through February 8, 2009.

Tickets range in price from $116.50 to $61.50. Fifty-two seats located on the stage are on sale for each performance, as well.
