Do any of you New Yorkers have the inside track on what the really good shows are going to be this season? Who's gonna get naked? Who's gonna be the breakout stud star? Share!

 

I did see this about next season:

Radcliffe Set to Bare All on Broadway

"Harry Potter" star Daniel Radcliffe has confirmed he'll be stripping for theater audiences in New York after signing on to star in the London transfer of Peter Shaffer's controversial play "Equus."

 

The teenager wowed West End audiences and critics with the role earlier this year, and now he'll join co-star Richard Griffiths when the production opens on Broadway.

 

Although dates, details and venues have yet to be announced, Radcliffe admits he hopes to be naked on Broadway toward the end of 2008.

 

He tells MTV News, "In all probability, if everything goes according to plan, it would definitely be me and Richard Griffiths and however many other cast members the unions will allow."

 

The play, which featured Radcliffe completely naked in one brief scene, played to nearly sold-out audiences at London's Gielgud Theatre from February 24 to June 9.

The fall theater season is starting but little seems to truly excite me. "Young Frankenstein" has stolen most of the Broadway buzz and seems to be a sure winner. The show stars Roger Bart (formerly of The Producers and a season in Desperate Houswives as Brie's stalker boyfriend),Megan Mullally, Sutton Foster, Andrea Martin, and Shuler Hensley. The pre-Broadway run in Seattle has gotten postive notices but it is said the show stills need work. It'll probably be very heard to get a ticket. The box office opens Monday.

 

"The Ritz" starring Rosie Perez and Kevin Chamberlain begins performances soon at Studio 54. Porn star Ryan Idol makes a cast appearance in this show as a "bath patron," so I guess we'll see him strutting around in a towel throughout the show.

 

"Pygmalian" stars Claire Danes. It'll be interesting to see how she does on the stage. George Bernard Shaw can be a real snore, but I've got a ticket and I'll give it a try. Jefferson Mays co-stars.

 

I can't really say if anything else is going to be a big hit. As you mentioned, Daniel Radcliffe is headed to Broadway in the spring to star in Equus.

With the coming revival of Terrance McNally's play The Ritz, someone will be getting naked. You may have thought Ryan Idol was washed up, but here he is making his Broadway debut as "man in towel."

 

I wouldn't want to see her naked, but Jane Houdyshell, who got such rave reviews for her acting in Well, will be appearing in The Receptionist.

 

Daniel Sunjata, from Take Me Out, where he was naked for most of the play, returns to Broadway in Cyrano de Bergerac.

 

Ethan Hawke directs off-Broadway Things We Want, at the Acorn.

 

Who invented TV? The Farnsworth Invention tries to tell you at the Music Box.

 

Charles Busch's play is ready for the big stage. I think it was a movie first, but anyway, Die Mommy Die is going live.

 

There will be a new version of FOrbidden Broadway to entertain you, and if that's not enough, there's still a chance to see Xanadu.

 

And in LA, the restaurant Numbers is still open for select clientele. Mostly magicians....
