There's something kind of ironic about this, but we're so gleeful over the news, we just don't care!

It's been officially announced that Darren Criss will take on the role of J. Pierrepont Finch in the Broadway production of How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying after Daniel Radcliffe takes his final bow. The Harry Potter star will leave the show officially on January 1st, with Darren making his Broadway debut on January 3rd. From there, he will have a three week run in the role, ending on January 22nd.

And we're booking our tickets to New York in 3…2…1…

We wouldn't miss it for anything in the world!!! We're so excited for you, Darren! Break a leg!

    its ironic because he wrote and starred (as harry) in a harry potter musical at the university of michigan a couple years ago. it was really funny!

    Strange that a show would put in an actor in the last three weeks and not just close three weeks early… I'm sure producers are seeing if Darren has the "star power" to hold this show over and extend the run a few months…which I predict will happen with Gleeks from all over the country. Daniel is a great broadway actor, but Darren was born for this role..and Broadway

    Re: pj88 – …except H2$ isn't closing after Darren's 3-week run. It's still an open run and he's just coming in for the post-holiday season lull before the company brings in the next replacement. It's a brilliant business strategy, really.

    I'm actually really pissed off!because I want to see my future hubby,Daniel Radcliffe on Broadway,before that douchebag,Darren Criss,takes over his role.and like I said before, Daniel makes the role his own.and that will just make my day,if my parents or uncle take me.and I'm talking about my Uncle Isacc.
