This is Radcliffe’s return to the stage since starring in a 2008 revival of Equus.

The Broadway classic, How to Succeed, will have Radcliffe’s character work his way up the corporate ladder where he’ll meet a secretary named Rosemary Pilkington, who will be played by Rose Hemingway. This marks Hemingway’s return after touring in Mamma Mia.

Radcliffe, 21, is excited that CNN’s Anderson Cooper will narrate Finch’s sudden rise and fall.

“Anderson Cooper just always stood out for me. He always had this kind of really cool … playful glint behind his eye, I think, which I always found quite funny,” Radcliffe states on the How to Succeed website.

Robert Morse, 79, who originally played the role of J. Pierrepont Finch in the original How To Succeed production and in the 1967 movie, stars on Mad Men, as Bertram Cooper, the advertising company’s founder.

Previews for the musical begin February 26th at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. Opening night is set for March 27th.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at FabulousBuzz.com. Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
