(New York, NY – Wednesday, September 7, 2011Nick Jonas will climb the corporate ladder as Broadway’s next ‘J. Pierrepont Finch’ in the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical comedy HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING beginning Tuesday, January 24, 2012 through Sunday, July 1, 2012. Tickets for HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING are currently on sale through Sunday, July 1, 2012. Jonas, who began his career on stage at age 8, returns to Broadway for the first time since the launch of the international sensation The Jonas Brothers.

Nick Jonas launched his professional career at age 8 as ‘Young Scrooge/Tiny Tim’ in A Christmas Carol and followed it up with roles in the Broadway productions of Les Misérables, Beauty and the Beast and Annie Get Your Gun with Reba McEntire. In the last year, he’s returned to his roots on the live stage, taking on the role of ‘Marius’ in London’s West End production of Les Misérables as well as at the 25th Anniversary Concert at The O2 Arena. Most recently, he starred as ‘Link Larkin’ alongside Harvey Fierstein and Marissa Jaret Winokur in the Hollywood Bowl’s production of Hairspray.

After a song written by Nick and his father found its way to Columbia Records, Nick was signed as a solo artist. His brothers Kevin and Joe were brought on board and the Jonas Brothers story began. Though the project never took off and they were dropped from Columbia, the industry had noticed and the Jonas Brothers were signed by Hollywood Records. In August 2007, the band released their self-titled debut album, which was soon certified platinum.

In 2008, the Jonas Brothers launched two sold-out tours and released their second album, A Little Bit Longer, becoming the first artist ever to have three albums on the Billboard Top 10 at once (Jonas BrothersA Little Bit Longer, and the Camp Rock soundtrack) and receiving a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. In 2009, they released Lines, Vines and Trying Times, which became their second No. 1 album in one year. They also released the film Jonas Brothers: 3-D Concert Experience.  In 2010, Nick launched a solo effort: Nick Jonas and the Administration and released the album Who I Am.

Daniel Radcliffe originated the role of ‘Finch’ in this production and will conclude his run in the show on Sunday, January 1, 2012. Darren Criss, breakout star of Fox’s Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning smash hit television show “GLEE”, will make his Broadway debut as J. Pierrepont Finch, performing a strictly limited three week engagement from Tuesday, January 3, through Sunday, January 22, 2012.

HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING began previews on Saturday, February 26, 2011 and opened Sunday, March 27 at Broadway’s Al Hirschfeld Theatre (302 West 45th Street). Nominated for eight 2011 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING is directed and choreographed by Tony and Emmy Award-winner Rob Ashford, and currently stars Daniel Radcliffe as J. Pierrepont Finch, 2011 Tony Award winner John Larroquette as J. B. Biggley, Rose Hemingway in her Broadway debut as Radcliffe’s onstage romantic interest Rosemary Pilkington, Tammy Blanchard as Hedy La Rue, Christopher J. Hanke as Bud Frump, Rob Bartlett as Twimble/Wally Womper, Mary Faber as Smitty, Ellen Harvey as Miss Jones, 2011 Emmy Award winner Michael Park as Bert Bratt, and Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist Anderson Cooper making his Broadway debut as the voice of the narrator, in a cast of 30.

HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING has music and lyrics by Academy Award and Tony Award winner Frank Loesser, and a book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert, based on the book by Shepherd Mead.  The creative team for HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING includes Derek McLane (Sets) Catherine Zuber (Costumes), Howell Binkley(Lighting), Jon Weston (Sound), Tom Watson (Hair), Doug Besterman (Orchestrations), and David Chase (Music Director and Arranger).  The 50th Anniversary production of HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING is produced by Broadway Across America (John Gore, Thomas B. McGrath, Beth Williams), Craig Zadan, Neil Meron, Joseph SmithMichael McCabe, Candy Spelling, Takonkiet Viravan/Scenario Thailand, Hilary A. Williams, Jen Namoff/Fakston Productions, Two Left Feet Productions/PowerArts, HOP Theatricals, LLC/Paul Chau/Daniel Frishwasser/Michael Jackowitz, and Michael Speyer - Bernie Abrams/Jacki Barlia Florin Adam Blanshay/Arlene Scanlan/TBS Service.

With the aid of a trusty self-help book "How to Succeed in Business" wily window washer J. Pierrepont Finch enjoys a riotous rise up the corporate ladder.  Will Finch’s unorthodox business practices at the World-Wide Wicket Company get him in hot water with the head honcho J.B. Biggley, and jeopardize his romance with secretary Rosemary Pilkington?  With a hilarious book and beloved score by Frank Loesser, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING is packed with hit standards such as “I Believe in You,” “Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm,” “The Company Way,” “Been a Long Day,” “Rosemary,” and “Brotherhood of Man.”

Tickets for HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING range from $52 - $132, and are available at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre box office and at Telecharge.com (212-239-6200).  The playing schedule is as follows: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7pm, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturday at 8pm, with matinees Wednesday and Saturday at 2pm and Sunday at 3pm.
