Quote of the Day

"There is a great deal more going on in the play, you know. I'm not writing porn, for God's sake!"

-British playwright Peter Shaffer, commenting on the hubbub surrounding the Broadway revival of his 1973 Equus over its young male star's nude scene. Or, as Michael Riedel classily calls it, "Harry Potter's other wand."

No matter how good this production may be, can't compare to this definitive reinterpretation.
