17-year-old Dan Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter movies, will be stretching his wings a bit this February as he stars on the London stage in a production of Equus. The play, which originally opened in London's National Theatre in 1973, centers on 17-year-old Alan Strang (Radcliffe) who seemingly without provocation blinds six horses with a metal spike in a stable in Hampshire. Psychiatrist Martin Dysart is sent in to investigate what prompted Alan to commit the atrocity, but in the process, begins to question his own integrity and what constitutes "normal." Several scenes require the Radcliffe to be fully nude on stage. For some beautiful (yet very un-Harry Potterish) promotional pics of Radcliffe in Equus, visit the news section of his site at http://www.danradcliffe.co.uk/ Some fans of the J.K. Rowling boy wizard series are up in arms by his decision to take on this role. I applaud him. It's a tough, provocative role which will surely stretch him as an actor. Hope the inevitable backlash isn't too tough on him. He seems like a very centered young man. Equus is an amazing play.
