Today, meet Christopher J. Hanke, who stars as Bud Frump. Check back for more buzz on Broadway's hottest new show!
About Bud Frump
“Schemer” doesn't begin to describe the aptly named nephew of company president J.B. Biggley (John Larroquette), who sings of the joys of his daily "Coffee Break." Bud's jealousy of up-and-comer J. Pierrepont Finch (Daniel Radcliffe) leads him into numerous plots against his office rival, but Finch always manages to stay one step ahead of the snobbish Bud.
About Christopher J. Hanke
Broadway vet Hanke tackles a delicious musical comedy villain created onstage by Charles Nelson Reilly. Familiar to Broadway audiences for leading roles in Cry-Baby, Rent and In My Life, he has starred in the Central Park production of Hair, toured in Big River and The Full Monty and headlined a regional staging of The Matchmaker. TV viewers know Hanke as a series regular in the hospital drama Three Rivers and can look for him in the upcoming season of HBO’s Big Love.
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying starts performances at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre on February 26, 2011. For tickets and more information, click here!
