Harry Potter's harry potter

I've been thinking about going to see Equus for a few months now. I was intrigued by the premise of the show: a 17-year old boy blinds six horses and is checked into a psychiatric hospital. And the facts that Daniel Radcliffe (of Harry Potter fame) was playing the boy, Richard Griffiths (of other fame, but also in the Harry Potter movies) was playing his therapist, and Kate Mulgrew (of Star Trek: Voyager fame) had another role in the play--it was an awesome opportunity to see all these actors in a rare stage performance.

Oh yeah, and this play has gotten some attention because Daniel Radcliffe is completely buck naked for about 10 minutes.

It's been a while since I've seen a play, but this one was really good. We had cheesecake at Junior's (soooo good) afterward and spent the whole time talking about the play. It was well acted (for the most part) and really well staged. The way they created the horses was incredible. If any one is in town the next couple of weeks, this would be a great play to see (without the kids).

And by the way, the hot chick was totally buck naked too, but apprently no one in the press caught that during the previews. (It's ok, Wifey was right next to me.)
