Nick Jonas is climbing the corporate ladder as Broadway's current 'J. Pierrepont Finch' in the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical comedy HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING through Sunday, July 1, 2012. 

Nick Jonas launched his professional career at age 8 as ‘Young Scrooge/Tiny Tim' in A Christmas Carol and followed it up with roles in the Broadway productions of Les Misérables, Beauty and the Beast and Annie Get Your Gun with Reba McEntire. In the last year, he's returned to his roots on the live stage, taking on the role of ‘Marius' in London's West End production of Les Misérables as well as at the 25th Anniversary Concert at The O2 Arena. Most recently, he starred as ‘Link Larkin' alongside Harvey Fierstein and Marissa Jaret Winokur in the Hollywood Bowl's production of Hairspray.

After a song written by Nick and his father found its way to Columbia Records, Nick was signed as a solo artist. His brothers Kevin and Joe were brought on board and the Jonas Brothers story began. Though the project never took off and they were dropped from Columbia, the industry had noticed and the Jonas Brothers were signed by Hollywood Records. In August 2007, the band released their self-titled debut album, which was soon certified platinum.

In 2008, the Jonas Brothers launched two sold-out tours and released their second album, A Little Bit Longer, becoming the first artist ever to have three albums on the Billboard Top 10 at once (Jonas Brothers, A Little Bit Longer, and the Camp Rock soundtrack) and receiving a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. In 2009, they released Lines, Vines and Trying Times, which became their second No. 1 album in one year. They also released the film Jonas Brothers: 3-D Concert Experience. In 2010, Nick launched a solo effort: Nick Jonas and the Administration and released the album Who I Am.

Tickets for HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING range from $52 - $132, and are available at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre box office and at Telecharge.com (212-239-6200). The playing schedule is as follows: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturday at 8pm, with matinees Wednesday and Saturday at 2pm and Sunday at 3pm.
