Confirming the rumours that went along with the reading of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying at the end of 2009, it has been confirmed in the New York Times that Daniel Radcliffe will star in a revival of the 1961 musical with the Frank Loesser score and the Abe Burrows-Jack Weinstock-Willie Gilbert book next year. The show, which won the Pulitzer Prize when it premiered, deals with the trials and tribulations of a young window washer who uses a book from which the title of the show gains its name to rise to the top of the World Wide Wickets Company in New York City.

Rob Ashford, who is responsible for the direction and choreography of the current Broadway revival of Promises, Promises will perform the same duties for “H2$”, which was last revived on the Great White Way in 1995, which starred Matthew Broderick in a Tony Award-winning turn in the central role. The role also won a Tony for Robert Morse. Could it be that the same fate awaits Radcliffe as he takes on this role? Only time will tell…
