Bridges to ‘Succeed’

Actor to join cast of Broadway musical

Beau Bridges has signed on to join the cast of the Broadway revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” stepping into the role John Larroquette exits at the beginning of January.

Bridges will begin perfs in the tuner Jan. 3 alongside Darren Criss, who will start a three-week stint as the young corporate striver now played by Daniel Radcliffe. Criss will then be replaced (starting Jan. 24) by Nick Jonas, who’ll star with Bridges until both bow out July 1.

“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” reps Bridges’ first gig in a musical on Broadway, where he hasn’t appeared since the 1974 play “Who’s Who in Hell.” Thesp will play corporate bigwig J.B. Biggley in the 1961 satire, with tunes by Frank Loesser and book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert.

Larroquette won a Tony for his stint as Biggley earlier this spring. Revival opened in March to robust B.O. and consistently logged weekly sales of more than $1 million during the summer.

“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” is produced by a team led by Broadway Across America (John Gore, Thomas B. McGrath, Beth Williams), Craig Zadan and Neil Meron.
