Star Daniel Radcliffe will be replaced by Darren Criss in the Broadway run of 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying', as the producers of the show turned their attention to tv stars recently.

On 'Glee', Criss is a gay student named Blaine Anderson, who goes to Dalton Academy and also leads a male singing group named 'Warblers'. He will make his Broadway debut on January 3, for three weeks, as J. Pierrepont Finch. Daniel Radcliffe's final performance on the show is set for January 1.

Radcliffe, 22, has been on 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying' since March, playing Finch, a window washer who turns to office work. The reviews were mixed, but the audience loved Radcliffe in the lead role. 'Nothing ages faster than comedy, and the show's episodic structure now seems as belabored as a sitcom plucked from a rusty time capsule', Los Angeles Times theater critic Charles McNulty wrote.

The cast includes Tony winner John Laroquette and Tammy Blanchard, and is directed and choreographed by Rob Ashford.

This is not the first time Criss embodies a character made famous by Radcliffe, as he wrote and starred in YouTube success serials 'A Very Potter Musical' and 'A Very Potter Sequel'.
