EQUUS PLAY CAST
Alec McCowen, Michael Snyder, Beverly May, Laurinda Barrett and Patrick Bedford sign the cast page of a playbill for the Helen Hayes Theatre production.
Show Bill signed: "Alec McCowen", "Michael Snyder", "Beverly May", "Laurinda Barrett", "Patrick/Bedfore", 32 pages, 5x9. Playbill for a production of Peter Shaffer's play Equus at the Helen Hayes Theatre (1976-1977). Equus, the Tony-winning Best Play of 1975, moved to the Helen Hayes the following year. The signers here were not in the original cast, but a Tony-winning play has little difficulty finding talented replacements for a long engagement. English Shakespearean actor ALEC McCOWN (B. 1925) also starred in (mostly British) films, including The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (1962), Frenzy (1972) and Hanover Street(1979). He made an appearance as "Q" in the Bond film Never Say Never Again (1983) and as a minister in Gangs of New York (2002). McCowen earned a Golden Globe nomination for Travels with My Aunt (1972). On Broadway, McCowen was nominated for four Drama Desk Awards, winning for Hadrian VII (1969) and The Philanthropist (1971). He received Tony nominations for those two plays, and also for St Mark's Gospel (1979). McCowan, who had created the Equus role of Martin Dysart in London, replaced Anthony Hopkins in the Broadway production. MICHAEL SNYDER, the original understudy, replaced Alan Strang in the part of Peter Firth. It was Snyder's only Broadway appearance. Equus, in which she played the replacement part of Hester Saloman, was the last of six Broadway appearances for LAURINDA BARRETT (b. 1931), dating back to 1956, the year of her first film as well. Like many New York stage actors, Barrett was also seen frequently on daytime TV dramas, with recurring roles on The Edge of Night, All My Children and Guiding Light. BEVERLY MAY (b. 1927), on the other hand, was making her first of eight Broadway appearances as the replacement Dora Strang in Equus. Her later work included supporting roles in Whose Life Is It Anyway? (1979) and The Front Page (1986-1977). Her film roles have included Witness (1985) and It's In the Water (1997). Irish actor PATRICK BEDFORD (1932-1999) got to play three replacement parts in Equus, Harry Dalton as well as Strang and Dysart. (He had received a Best Actor Tony nomination for Philadelphia, Here I Come (1966). Bedford was a regular on British television, dating from an episode of The Adventures of Robin Hood (1957).
