    London (ANI): Harry Potter star actor Daniel Radcliffe has already made his debut on West End, and he's now planning to do the same on Broadway. The actor has confirmed that he will be making his debut on the American stage when the play Equus goes to the Big Apple next year.

    And, he's 'very, very excited' about the moment even though he's also very nervous. "Of course there's nerves. If I wasn't nervous then I would be dead," the BBC quoted him, as saying. "It's a good thing, it's healthy. I'm obviously nervous but I'm very very excited," he added.

    Radcliffe plays a disturbed youngster who blinds horses in Peter Shaffer's play, and hopes that it will be a hit on Broadway as it was at West End.

    "If we can get a straight play to really succeed in a world of theatre that is so besieged by musicals, that would be a real achievement and I think the time is absolutely right to do it there," he said. "For a kid who grew up listening to showbiz tunes in the car, Broadway is a big, big thing. All the people I know in New York say New York is ready for this kind of play," he added.

    Also accompanying Radcliffe will be director of play, designer and lighting director, as well as his co-star Richard Griffiths.

    "I'll be there with Richard so when people said it was a risk to do it in the first place you just have to look around the rehearsal room - with me and Richard Griffiths, Thea Sharrock, John Napier and David Hersey," he said. "I was just thinking, 'If I screw up I'm going to be screwing up with better people around me'."

    Equus is expected to open in New York in September 2008.
