Richard Griffiths and Daniel Radcliffe, who starred in the London revival of Equus, are set to reprise their work in the upcoming Broadway production of Peter Shaffer's award-winning play.

Director Thea Sharrock again directs the production, which will arrive at Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre Sept. 5. The show will open Sept. 25 for a strictly limited 22-week engagement through Feb. 8, 2009.

In Equus, "psychiatrist Martin Dysart (Tony Award winner Richard Griffiths) investigates the blinding of six horses, a savage act committed by a mild-mannered stable boy, Alan Strang (Daniel Radcliffe), whose home life is filled with bigotry and religious fervor," show notes explain. "As Dysart reveals the mysteries behind the boy's demons, he realizes he is confronting his own."

Joining Griffiths and Radcliffe in the Broadway production will be stage and screen actress Kate Mulgrew.

Here is a first look at the forthcoming Broadway stars:
