Hold Your Horses

Tonight is the official opening of the much buzzed about Broadway transfer of Peter Shaffer's Equus, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Richard Griffiths and Kate Mulgrew.

The hot ticket revival (scheduled for a limited run through February 8) netted glowing reviews while in London, and it looks to reap the same accolades on this side of the pond as well. How do I know? Well, my exclusive Big Apple source -- Jeffrey, the Cynical-New-Yorker-Who-Literally-Sees-Every-Show-on-Broadway -- has already seen it ... twice. And if know Jeffrey, you know that's saying something.

For more on the history of Equus, including its original 1974 Tony Award winning Broadway run (starring Anthony Hopkins and Peter Firth) and the subsequent 1977 film adaptation (starring Richard Burton and Firth in Academy Award nominated performances), read's extensive essay on the subject.
