Rumors are flying that Darren Criss of GLEE fame may take over the lead of “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” on Broadway from current star Daniel Radcliffe.
Negotiations may begin soon, with sources saying Darren Criss would take over for a few weeks in January. With rehearsals he would only miss about “an episode and a half” of GLEE taping.
In a funny bit of irony, Darren Criss became an internet YouTube celebrity as the star of ‘A Very Potter Musical’ and ‘A Very Potter Sequel’. To see him take over the lead on Broadway from the original Harry Potter is just too serendipitous to believe.
Here’s hoping we see this all work out. I think Darren definitely deserves his Broadway debut and he’s a great fit for the role.
