It’s a feast for your eyes: the poster for Nick Jonas‘ Broadway debut in How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying has hit the web. Nick is still two dudes down the line to play the starring role, however — current star Daniel Radcliffe will stay in the spot through January 1st, and Darren Criss will step in for a few weeks, until January 24th, when Nick finally takes the stage.

How Does New How to Succeed… Star Nick Jonas Stack Up to Predecessor Daniel Radcliffe?

How Does New How to Succeed... Star Nick Jonas Stack Up to Predecessor Daniel Radcliffe?

Even though Daniel Radcliffe by no means originated the lead role in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying – the musical’s been around since 1961 — for us he’s the face of the Broadway show. And now he’s stepping down, to be replaced by Nick Jonas. We’re so attached to Daniel’s take on J. Pierrepont Finch, we’re not sure we can welcome a newbie, even one with Nick’s impressive theater pedigree. So, let’s compare these leading men. More »

Video: 'Harry Potter' Meets 'The Book of Mormon'

Daniel Radcliffe is on Broadway right now in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, so it only makes sense that the next step was combining Harry Potter and a Broadway musical. Youtuber Tessa Netting enlisted friends to make this great mashup of Harry Potter and The Book of Mormon. Even though the resemblances aren’t perfect (a brunette Hermione?), the song parody is pitch-perfect. More »

Tony Awards: Daniel Radcliffe Is So Little!

Tony Awards: Daniel Radcliffe Is So Little!

He is. He’s really very tiny. But you know what? He’s also surprisingly adept at musical theatre! I haven’t seen the current revival of How to Succeed (for which Radcliffe was snubbed for an acting nomination), but I just caught the clip of the show, and I was rather pleasantly surprised! Ladies and gentlemen, not only can Harry Potter carry a tune, but also, he’s one helluva a dancer. For a number of years, when his physicality in the Harry Potter movies got particularly stiff, I kind of wanted to gently remind him that he has knees and that he can, in fact, bend them. Looks like he’s learned! Furthermore, he looks like he’s having a lot of fun up there, which is really half the performance. Check out the video here! More »

Daniel Radcliffe: Who Knew Harry Potter Was a Triple Threat?

Daniel Radcliffe: Who Knew Harry Potter Was a Triple Threat?

When he signed on for the lead role in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Daniel Radcliffe told director Rob Ashford that he wasn’t a dancer. It’s not unusual for Broadway shows to cast big names in order to fill the audience, sacrificing some stage talent in exchange for publicity. But Daniel was either being incredibly modest or he took a lot of classes before the show opened, because his moves are impeccable. More »
