Inside the Cast Recording of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (Video)

PlayBlog   Inside the Cast Recording of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (Video) Daniel Radcliffe and the cast of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying have "succeeded" in recording the official cast album of the 50th anniversary revival of the Tony-nominated musical. The How to Succeed… CD arrived in stores June 7 on the Decca Broadway label.


Here, the actors of the Broadway production talk about how recording the music for the album differs from singing the classic Frank Loesser tunes live each night at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. Backed by a full band and singing on a stage rather than at a recording studio, the actors and creative team of How to Succeed… offer a glimpse into the making of the newly released CD.

Radcliffe ("Harry Potter," Equus) stars as J. Pierrepont Finch, the ambitious window washer with executive dreams. The cast also features Emmy Award-winning actor John Larroquette ("Night Court") as World Wide Wicket Company president J.B. Biggley, Emmy Award winner and Tony Award nominee Tammy Blanchard (Gypsy, "Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows") as office bombshell Hedy La Rue, Christopher J. Hanke (In My Life, Cry-Baby) as Bud Frump, Rose Hemingway (Parade at the Mark Taper Forum) as Rosemary Pilkington, Rob Bartlett (Chicago, Little Shop of Horrors) as Twimble/Wally Womper, Mary Faber (American Idiot, Avenue Q) as Smitty, Ellen Harvey (Thou Shalt Not, The Music Man) as Miss Jones and Michael Park (Middletown) as Bert Bratt.
