Broadway Revival Of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying Now On Sale

In case you've been living under a rock for the last few months you are probably aware that Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe will be making his Broadway musical debut this Spring in How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying. The show which first premiered on Broadway in October 1961 is set to begin previews at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on February 26. Opening night is scheduled for March 27.

Having seen the last revival in 1995 with Matthew Broderick and future television and Broadway star Megan Mullally. Now when I saw it in the fall of 1995 it starred John Stamos. To my surprise he was very good.In fact I actually saw it twice with him in the leading role. Starring along side Mr.Radcliffe is television and film star John Larroquette as his boss and mentor J.B. Biggley.

Now while most people will probably say that it is too soon for a revival I have one thing to say to you. Gypsy. I take that back. I have two things to say to you. La Cage Aux Follies. Now while both revivals were critically acclaimed and won many awards it had only been five years between productions. It;s been almost fifteen since How To Succeed closed. I say it's about time Broadway had a good old fashioned musical back on the boards. What do you think? Until next time theatre fans.
