Dan Radcliffe participates in table read of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying musical
In October, Variety reported that Dan Radcliffe would be starring in the Broadway musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”. At the time, Dan was the only cast member set for the production.
Today, Broadway World is reporting that Dan participated in a table read of the musical in New York City on Monday. The reporter was very pleased with Dan's performance during the read:
First things first. Daniel Radcliffe was AMAZING. He interpreted the role in a charming, adorable and fresh way. He sang great. I think everyone was there to see if he could do it. And boy, he really did it. He was great. He came off as a full-fledged musical star. Those of us who saw him in Equus know he has the stage chops as a dramatic actor but now I can say that he could easily take Broadway by storm as a musical comedy star, too. After that final Harry Potter movie comes out, this guy can do whatever he wants in any medium. I loved him. And it seems to me that he is the youngest actor to play the role of Finch. And his youth made the show feel fresh and new. It had a new kind of innocence to contrast the cynicism of the world he is in.
