News   Will Equus Return To B'way With Hopkins?
 
New York Post reporter Ward Morehouse III quotes Oscar-winner Anthony Hopkins (Nov. 19) as saying he's been approached to do Equus again on Broadway. No details were given as to the production or creative team, though Hopkins did say he could only manage a 4-6 week run because of his film commitments. "I'm sent a lot of things to do on the stage," Hopkins told the Post, "but I don't have that much time these days. And I find the prolonged run in a stage show a very boring experience. It's very difficult to keep it fresh."

Hopkins' film roles include Silence Of The Lambs and Shadowlands.
