Daniel Radcliffe to take quick hiatus from 'How to Succeed in Business'
How do you really succeed in business? By never forgetting who butters your bread -- and always really trying to keep everybody happy.
Daniel Radcliffe has made Warner Bros. (not to mention himself) millions of dollars by playing the titular boy wizard in the "Harry Potter" movies. But the final film in the blockbuster franchise is scheduled to premiere on July 15, right in the middle or Radcliffe's Broadway run as the wicket-selling J. Pierrepont Finch in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying." The show is now in previews and opens on March 27 with no set closing date.
To accommodate Radcliffe's promotional work for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2," the producers of the Frank Loesser musical will not hold performances on July 7, 8 and 9.
That's the company way.
