Darren Criss, one of the stars of Glee, is set to make his Broadway debut. According to Deadline, he will replace Daniel Radcliffe in the musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.

Criss will soon begin negotiations with the musical’s producers now that the executive producer of Glee gave the actor his blessing. He even encouraged Darren to fulfill his Broadway dream. Once the deal is made official, Criss will replace Radcliffe from January 3 to January 22 when Daniel leaves to return to movies. He will also have to attend 2 weeks of rehearsals in December and will miss an episode and a half of Glee. In addition to the musical, Glee producers may make accommodations for Darren to do a movie during production of the show as well.

How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying has been a hit at the box office already. It’s made over $1 million every week. We’ll have to wait and see if this changes when Radcliffe is replaced.
