Nick Jonas to Join How to Succeed

Nick Jonas.

How do you succeed Daniel Radcliffe and Darren Criss on Broadway? Hopefully, with a whole lotta trying. It was announced today that Nick Jonas will assume the lead role in the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying starting January 24 (after Criss supplants Radcliffe with a two-and-half-week fill-in), and he'll stay with the production until July 1. The 18-year-old is no stranger to Broadway shows — he appeared in Annie Get Your Gun and Beauty and the Beast as a young'un, and has played both Marius and Gavroche in Les Miserables — but how will the most muted of the Jonas Brothers do in this high-energy musical?
