Harry Potter Dances Up Corporate Ladder in ‘Business’: Review

Last seen on Broadway in the buff and committing unspeakable crimes against horses, Daniel Radcliffe follows the ponderous “Equus” with a chipper song-and-dance performance in “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

The actor known as Harry Potter plays that cunning corporate ladder-climber J. Pierrepont Finch in Rob Ashford’s high-octane, hard-working revival. Radcliffe doesn’t catch fire until late in the second act of Frank Loesser and Abe Burrows’s delectable satire of Big Business, ‘50s-style. But there’s more than enough to divert the eye and ear along the way.
