How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying

A revival of “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” is now showing at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on Broadway in New York.  The classic story follows window cleaner J. Pierpont Finch’s rise through the corporate ranks and as the title suggests, he succeeds in business – without really trying.  The musical stars Daniel Radcliffe (of Harry Potter), John Larroquette (who won a Tony for Best Actor in a Musical) and Christopher J. Hanke.  The entire cast is fantastic and for the Harry Potter fans, you’ll see an entirely different side to Daniel Radcliffe.  I’ve seen all the HP movies as well as Radcliffe’s Broadway debut in “Equus” a few years ago and he’s a very versatile actor.  Though he never needs to work another day in his life, if he stays with acting, he’s going to have a great career ahead of him because he is so talented.

After most Broadway shows, you can wait by the stage door and meet the actors you’ve just seen perform.  If you are planning on doing this for “How To Succeed…” be warned that the crowds outside waiting to catch a glimpse of Daniel Radcliffe are akin to footage you’ve seen of Beatle-Mania – and I am not even kidding!  See how I fared, after the jump.
