Equus

HFCC's Equus Different

Richard Marsh Dearborn Press and Guide December 7, 1985

If you are in the mood for an evening of light entertainment, then definitely avoid Henry Ford Community College's "Equus." However, if you want to see theater for drama's sake, then that production should not be missed. Powerful acting by the lead actors, a simple yet effective set and creative directing by George Popovich provide an excellent example of what theater can be.

Randal Kuzdak did a magnificent portrayal of the mentally disturbed Alan Strang. His performance is complemented by the fine characterization of psychiatrist Martin Dysart by Daniel Booth.
