London and Broadway Equus star Daniel Radcliffe will take part in an Aug. 19 TimesTalks event.

The New York Times presents the staff-moderated series at The TimesCenter.

"Daniel Radcliffe: Screen to Broadway Stage" will take place Aug. 19 from 6:30-8 PM. (Tickets are currently available through the TimesTalks website.)

"From the boy wizard in the 'Harry Potter' films and Rudyard Kipling's ill-fated son in 'My Boy Jack,' to the troubled teenager in Peter Shaffer's play Equus, Daniel Radcliffe is an actor of diverse talents," reads a desciption of the evening. "Hear him discuss his Broadway debut in the drama, which starts previews on Sept. 5, and also how he's been able to move from screen to stage so seamlessly."

Radcliffe will reprise his London turn in Equus opposite original co-star Richard Griffiths. Kate Mulgrew joins the stars for the Broadway run at the Broadhurst Theatre. Thea Sharrock, who directed the London run, will direct the show scheduled to open Sept. 25 for a 22-week engagement through Feb. 8, 2009.

Seating is limited on a first-come, first-served basis. TimesTalks programs and speakers are subject to change. The TimesCenter is located at 242 West 41st Street (between 7th and 8th Avenue). For a complete lineup and more information, visit TimesTalks.com.
