Broadway News: Harry Potter means Business
Variety reports that Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame will head a December reading of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Radcliffe made his Broadway debut in the 2008 revival of Equus, which transferred from an earlier run in London's West End. "How to Succeed" chronicles the rise of a crafty window cleaner as he follows the advice of a self-help manual to connive his way up through the ranks of the World Wide Wickets Co. and get the girl in the process. Future production plans will be worked out following the success of the reading.
