*UPDATED* BroadwayWorld .com : Scoop on New Reading of How To Succeed in Business

We have been elbow deep in One Day in the Life all day, and looking back, but now it’s time to look forward… the lovely Emma has had her eyes peeled and linked us to a report on BroadwayWorld.com from someone who was lucky enough to attend Monday’s read through of  How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying…

First things first. Daniel Radcliffe was AMAZING. He interpreted the role in a charming, adorable and fresh way. He sang great. I think everyone was there to see if he could do it. And boy, he really did it. He was great. He came off as a full-fledged musical star. Those of us who saw him in Equus know he has the stage chops as a dramatic actor but now I can say that he could easily take Broadway by storm as a musical comedy star, too. After that final Harry Potter movie comes out, this guy can do whatever he wants in any medium. I loved him. And it seems to me that he is the youngest actor to play the role of Finch. And his youth made the show feel fresh and new. It had a new kind of innocence to contrast the cynicism of the world he is in.

 Well, this sounds like it’ll be expensive…

*UPDATE* Many thanks to Samara for sending in a link to another article about the reading. Enjoy!
