Daniel Radcliffe Sings

He won't be Harry Potter boy wonder for much longer. Actor Daniel Radcliffe is set to head the cast of Broadway musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. A reading for the play is scheduled for December, as producers test out the piece for a possible Rialto revival. How to Succeed is essentially a lighter, musical version of Mad Men, and chronicles the rise of a window cleaner who follows a self-help manual to rise to the top of the World Wide Wickets Co. The musical was revived in 1995, with Matthew Broderick heading the cast and earning a Tony for his role. It may feel a little soon to mount another revival, but with corporate America in upheaval, the chance to mock the business world may be too good to pass up.
