Nick Jonas to replace Dan Radcliffe and Darren Criss on Broadway
Nick Jonas, the youngest and arguably the most talented of the Jonas Brothers, will be taking over the role of J. Pierrepont Finch currently being played by Daniel Radcliffe in the Broadway musical sensation, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
As we previously announced, Dan will complete his run of the show at the end of the year and Darren Criss, Harry Potter himself from The Harry Potter Musical and Sequel fame, will be beginning his performances on January 3 and go through January 23, 2012.
Upon Darren’s completion, Nick Jonas will take the leading role over on January 24th and go until July 1st, 2012. Ironically, Nick is also trying to get cast alongside Darren Criss in ‘Glee‘.
Nick is not new to the Broadway stage as he has performed in several plays including: Annie Get Your Gun in 2001, Beauty and the Beast in 2002, and Les Miserables in 2003. According to a recent article:
“This is going to be an exciting journey. It’s great to come back to Broadway. I always said my return to Broadway would have to feel right – the right role at the right time. This felt right.”
Good luck Nick, you are going to have to fill some big shoes from Dan and Darren.
