Here’s today’s flashback; From 1977, Leonard Nimoy got to Broadway as the 5th actor to portray Dr. Martin Dysart in Peter Shaffer’s Equus. The drama was about disturbed young man fanatically obsessed with horses. I bet he was delighted to be on Broadway (his second time, the first in 1973 in Full Circle with Bibi Anderson). and this was the first time I bought an issue of The New York Times just to get some articles! You can see Nimoy’s passion for the theater, and his regrets that he didn’t come to Broadway sooner.
My Mom and two of her friends went to NYC later that year and saw the show! Why oh why didn’t she take me with her? (It’s okay Mom, I’d meet him in 1978!)
