The Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying will end its run on May 20 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. Currently starring Nick Jonas and Beau Bridges, the musical will have played 30 preview and 474 regular performances at the time of closing. Jonas was set to star in the production, which recouped its initial investment in December 2011, through July 1.
The musical follows young window washer J. Pierrepont Finch (Jonas), who learns to climb the corporate ladder with the help of a how to book. Soon he finds himself near the top of the World Wide Wicket Company, which is overseen by J.B. Biggley (Bridges). How to Succeed also stars Michael Urie, Rose Hemingway, Tammy Blanchard, Sara Jean Ford, Rob Bartlett, Michael Park and Ellen Harvey.
The revival of How to Succeed opened on March 27, 2011, originally starring Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette. The production earned nine Tony Award nominations including Best Revival of a Musical, with Larroquette receiving a Tony for Best Featured Actor in a Musical. In addition to Radcliffe and Jonas, Darren Criss also played Finch for a three-week engagement earlier this year.
