Daniel Radcliffe Makes A Strong Broadway Debut!

How To Succeed In Business Without Trying tickets are available online and from the box office. This award-winning musical comedy began previews at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre February 26, 2011 with an official opening night scheduled for March 27. The latest Broadway revival of the popular production features an all-star cast, including the Broadway debut for Daniel Radcliffe. The production is set for an open-need run and sure to be a big hit.

The revival of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying tickets on Broadway marks the 50th anniversary for the stage show. The hit musical originally opened to Broadway audiences on October 14, 1961 at the 46th Street Theatre. The show had a successful run before its final curtain on March 6, 1965 after 1,417 performances. It took home seven Tony Awards as well as the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The original cast included Robert Morse Bonnie Scott, Charles Nelson Reilly, and Rudy Vallee. The West End adapted a production for London, which opened in 1963 and featured a new cast. On March 23, 1995 the first Broadway revival was staged at the same theater but under the new name of the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The revival ran for 548 performances under the direction of Des McAnuff and starred Matthew Broderick as Finch. An adapted screen play was launched in 1967, and the film featured much of the original cast in the roles.

The musical is based on Shepherd Mead's 1952 best selling book "How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying." The original stage show adaptation, with the book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert, tells the story of J. Pierrepont Finch. Finch (Radcliffe) is a window washer who finagles his way to the top rung of the World Wide Wicket Company using nothing more than a self-help book.

Much like director Rob Ashford's last Broadway production of "Promises, Promises" How To Succeed is a nostalgic ride into the "Mad Men" era. While the revival's writing suffers a little from "outdated" writing it makes up for with the show stopping choreography. The production can be summed up as a sitcom which has been plucked right out of a simpler time. Radcliffe does a great job as Finch in his debut and little doubt his name on the marquee will be much of the draw for the musical. Multiple Emmy winner John Larroquette (Night Court) plays company boss J.B. Biggley and adds many humorous moments to the show. The two-act musical includes songs "The Company Way," "Grand Old Ivy," and "I Believe in You."

How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying tickets are on sale now. They are available online and through the Broadway box office. With a talented cast, great songs and many fun moments, the revival is sure to find an audience and keep them entertained. While it might not be the most potent of Spring Broadway openings it provides a nostalgic joyride of light-hearted fun.
