The Daily Mail has a report online which notes that actor Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) is currently undergoing daily singing lessons and frequent dance lessons in preparation for his upcoming role in the remake of the 1960s musical “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.” The show’s director, Rob Ashford, comments that:

“[Dan’s] singing every day with a vocal coach in London and I’ve got my assistant putting him through his dance paces every other day. I’m covering all bases with Daniel – and he’s delivering.”

The article goes on to note:

Rose Hemingway, who has been cast opposite Daniel as his stage girlfriend Rosemary Pilkington, told me she did her audition with Daniel.

‘He’s been doing a lot of work and he’s going to surprise people. He’s not afraid to learn how to do things,’ the 26-year-old actress from Philadelphia said.

Rehearsals for “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” are set to begin in February.
