Daniel Radcliffe's hit West End play, Equus, is to close in June, just three months after it opened to rave reviews.
Radcliffe said he was not concerned about appearing naked on stage
The move is something of a surprise, as producers had been reportedly looking for an actor to replace Radcliffe, 17, at the end of his run.
Instead, the play will close in London and embark on a 12-week national tour with a new cast.
Radcliffe, best known for playing Harry Potter, made headlines for appearing nude in the play.
He also received critical acclaim for taking on the role of troubled stableboy Alan Strang, who has an erotic relationship with his horses.
It was recently reported that Billy Elliot star Jamie Bell was set to succeed Radcliffe in the role. Actors Orlando Bloom and Jesse Metcalfe have also been linked to the play.
Spokesman Peter Thompson said that Equus had recouped its investment in a record-breaking eight weeks of business since it opened in February.
But he said director Thea Sharrock wanted the sell-out play "to go out on a high".
The show will open on Broadway next year, followed shortly after by an Australian production.
Radcliffe, along with Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, return to the big screen in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix this summer.
