Daniel Radcliffe is the toast of Broadway after wowing New York's theatre critics with his opening night performance in Equus.
The Harry Potter star took to Manhattan's Broadhust Theater on Thursday (25Sep08) to play Alan Strang, a 17-year-old schoolboy who is obsessed with horses, in Peter Schaffer's play.
Any nerves the 19-year-old had before making his New York stage debut, will be eased by a string of glowing reviews from the city's tough theatrical press.
New York Times' Ben Brantley wrote on Friday (25Sep08), "Daniel Radcliffe steps into a mothball-preserved, off-the-rack part and wears it like a tailor’s delight - that is, a natural fit that allows room to stretch."
New York Post reviewer Clive Barnes adds his own praise: "His acting, beautifully understated and withdrawn, has just the right manner for this horribly mixed-up adolescent."
And The New York Daily News' Joe Dziemianowicz leads his review with the line, "Let's get right to it - Daniel Radcliffe , the marquee man-boy and the reason Equus has trotted back to Broadway. Yes, he's terrific and gives a passionate performance."
