If you were hoping to see Daniel Radcliffe perform this week on Broadway, better adjust your schedules. Thanks to Radcliffe, the musical revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” is dark tomorrow–Thursday–and Friday. That’s because Daniel–who recently admitted to having had a drinking problem in an interview with GQ–is off to London. He’s got two days of international press and the UK premiere of “Harry Potter 7.2” or “and the Deathly Hallows, Pt. 2.” Warner Bros. had to buy out two nights of shows so Radcliffe could join in the London festivities.
Today–Wednesday–he’s doing two shows before getting on the Warner jet. Next Monday, July 11th, “How to Succeed” is dark anyway, so Daniel can be at the New York premiere for “Deathly Hallows.” The next day he goes right back to work with an eight performance a week schedule. What happens at the end of “Deathly Hallows”? I don’t want to spoil it if you haven’t read the book, but Harry is eaten by a giant spider, Hermione opens a tranny club in Lithuania, and Rupert Grint stars as Richie in the musical version of “Happy Days.” Or the Weasley family does a reality show on MTV.
