CNN host Anderson Cooper will provide the voice of the narrator via audio recordings in the upcoming Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Anderson follows in the footsteps of the late Walter Cronkite, who voiced the narrator for the musical's 1995 Broadway revival. Directed by Rob Ashford and starring Daniel Radcliffe, the production will begin performances February 26, with opening night set for March 27 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre.
Cooper is best known as the host of CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 and has won two Emmy Awards. He is also in talks to launch his own syndicated day time talk show. A former model for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, Cooper has served as host of The Mole, World News Now and as a frequent guest host for Live with Regis and Kelly.
