Will Darren Criss make his Broadway debut this year in a star-studded revival? A deal for him to do just that is in the works, according to Deadline.com. The actor - who rose to fame this year on Fox's hit show GLEE - is being considered to replace Daniel Radcliffe in HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING when Radcliffe's contract ends. Negotiations are expected to begin shortly; should Ryan Murphy and 20th Century Fox of GLEE agree to the project, Criss could very well be on his way to headlining HOW TO SUCCEED. (more...)

As previously reported, Wednesday night was to mark the 100th performance of HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, but after a delay of just over one-hour, the show was cancelled. The audience was informed twice via announcements that there was a delay, followed by an onstage apperance by Daniel Radcliffe and John Larroquette who told the audience that the performance would not be taking place, citing a 'tragedy within the company.' It has since been revealed that the tragedy was the death of a 29-year old carpenter for the show due to an apparent accidental drug overdose (the official cause of death has not yet been declared). The stagehand's name has not been released and an investigation took place at the show's home at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre today. The LA Times has now reported that according to one law enforcement official, 'at least a dozen packets that had contained heroin' were found in the stagehand's work area. The man was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital last night. (more...)
