Harry Potter Star’s Musical Debut

April 16, 2010

Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe is to make his Broadway musical debut in 2011 in a revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

The show, to open next spring, marks the 20-year-old’s first stage role in New York since Equus in 2008.

Radcliffe will play a young mail room employee who rises to the top of the corporate heap in this musical satire, first seen on Broadway in 1961.

Matthew Broderick starred in the most recent Broadway revival in 1995.

The show won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1962, one of only six musicals to have won this prestigious award.

A film version in 1967 saw Robert Morse reprise his Tony-winning performance as ambitious hero Finch.

Radcliffe is currently filming the second part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the final instalment in the blockbuster film series.

According to Broadway website Playbill.com, the actor took part in a reading of the musical in New York last December.
