The second Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying opens tonight. The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical features a score by Frank Loesser with a book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert. Rob Ashford, the Tony Award winning director-choreographer who has staged shows like Promises, Promises, Thoroughly Modern Millie and Cry-Baby), is at the helm of this production.
The show stars Daniel Radcliffe as J. Pierrepont Finch, with Tammy Blanchard as Hedy La Rue, Christopher J. Hanke as Bud Frump and Rose Hemingway as Rosemary Pilkington. Rob Bartlett will play Twimble/Wally Womper, Mary Faber will play Smitty and Ellen Harvey will play Miss Jones. John Larroquette will appear as J.B. Biggley and the book’s voice will be recorded by CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
