Darren Criss is Broadway Bound
HollywoodNews.com: We knew this was a possibility but how great to know that it’s now official: Glee sensation Darren Criss will make his Broadway debut in January replacing Daniel Radcliffe in the musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
Radcliffe’s final performance is on Jan. 1, 2012 and Criss will step in beginning Jan. 3 for a three-week run that concludes Jan. 22.
Director/choreographer Rob Ashford said: “Daniel gives an extraordinary performance eight times a week and we knew finding someone to fill his shoes would be nearly impossible. When we learned of Darren’s dream of performing on Broadway we knew we had found our Finch but presumed his “Glee” schedule would eliminate any chance to work with him. We are ecstatic and grateful to Ryan Murphy and his “Glee” team at 20th Century Fox TV for helping to make both Darren’s and our dream come true.”
