Harry Potter To Do B’way Musical

Harry Potter star Daniel (“I’m not gay”) Radcliffe will make his Broadway musical debut starring as J. Pierrepont Finch in a revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying set to bow in Spring 2011. The role, originated by Robert Morse in 1961 and resurrected by Matthew Broderick in 1995, is that of a young window-cleaner who undergoes a meteoric rise from the mail-room to Vice President of Advertising at the World-Wide Wicket Company. Radcliffe — who will do “How To Succeed” after he finishes filming the final “Harry Potter” movie — made his Broadway debut in a play, “Equus,” where he gave a credible though not thrilling performance. He tested the Broadway-musical waters at the same time with a charity-benefit performance number in the video above.
