"Equus" is happening
For the past two months, I've been negotiating with Samuel French, Inc., to secure the rights to produce Peter Shaffer's "Equus" as a Sudler Fund production at Yale in mid-February. I was originally denied the rights, because there will be a first-class production in New York (i.e. on Broadway) for 22 weeks in 2008/2009 (starring Daniel Radcliffe), meaning that access to the play is not currently available to the general public and probably won't be until mid-2009.
But somehow I talked to the right person (i.e. Peter Shaffer's lawyer...I wasn't supposed to get his number, but I did...oops...), and he's helped me get special permission to produce the play.
If you're interested in working on the production, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) AND my producer, Steve Lao (email@example.com). The production is planned for Friday, February 13, and Saturday, February 14, 2009.
