Glee’s breakout star Darren Criss will make his Broadway debut when he takes over for Daniel Radcliffe for three weeks in the hit musical How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.

The charming chief Warbler on Fox’s smash hit show will replace the Harry Potter star to play J. Pierrepont Finch from January 3 to January 22, with January 1 being Radcliffe’s last show. (It’s not clear if the show will continue after Criss finishes his run).

This latest Broadway production of Frank Loesser's 1961 show about an ambitious window cleaner was up for a Tony award this past June, although it lost the prize for best revival of a musical to Anything Goes.

Radcliffe -- who as found international fame playing Harry Potter -- has been in the production since it opened at the Al Hirschfield Theatre last March.

Ironically, Criss, 24, played Harry Potter in his college productions of A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel. He currently plays Blaine Anderson, an openly gay student, on Glee.
