Harry Potter and the $1000 Suit, anyone?

A year after Daniel Radcliffe galloped around naked in the Great White Way’s Equus, the young actor announced he will hit Broadway in a production of the 1961 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

It’s a powerful role to play, and Radcliffe will be just 21 when the show opens next year. Fifty years ago, the show started Robert Morse, who’s now the ad agency owner on Mad Men. Matthew Broderick did the show in a 1995 revival. The musical is about the adventures of J. Pierrepont Finch, an ambitious young man who dreams to rise from the basement mailroom to the top floors of management for the “World-Wide Wicket Company.”
