As previews are slated to begin this Saturday, coverage of the Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) lead Broadway revival of "How to Succeed In Business Without Really Trying" has been coming fast and furious.  Here, now, is a brief roundup of the latest news about the forthcoming musical.


First, People Magazine has a first look at rehearsals for the musical, which feature a number of behind the scenes pictures by photographer Ari Mintz and reports as the cast and crew prepare to take the stage.  Available to view here in its entirety, the first look photo spread showcases Radcliffe, along with his Broadway costars Rose Hemingway and John Larroquette.  

Second, Playbill.com has introduced a new feature, The Director's Cut, in which the creative minds behind a Broadway show will interview members of its cast.  To start, Playbill.com has the director of "How to Succeed..." Robert Ashford interviewing actor Dan Radcliffe about their forthcoming musical.  Available to watch right here, the interview covers the production of the revival, Dan's decision to take on a musical role, how he became confident in dancing on stage, and much more.

The musical is set for previews this weekend and will open on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on March 27.  Full details can be found via this link.

I’m still wondering how Mr. Radcliffe can have learned to dance decently enough for Broadway if he’s got some sort of spatial/movement-related learning disability, as he has previously stated. Once the reviews are in, it would be a service to other people who suffer from the same disorder if he would go into greater detail how he is overcoming his limitations.

WeenyOwl, it’s called dispraxia, but he said his condition is very mild. But I agree it’s very admirable all he has worked to be prepared to do a musical, taking singing and dancing lessons for years, and at the same time he worked filming the HP films… He worked very hard for Equus too and he was terrific.
I think he is an example for everyone, with or without limitations.

I really want to see this, I hope that it is good, even if it isn’t I’d still want to see it just to see Dan singing and dancing !…. @WeenyOwl, I agree about him letting us know how he overcame his spatial disabilities :)
