Daniel Radcliffe leaves musical with new theater record and heartfelt tributes

Daniel Radcliffe rang in the New Year with a new theater record in New York.

The Harry Potter star ended his run in hit musical How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying by breaking the box office record at the Hirschfeld Theater during his final week.


The young star ended his 345-show run on Sunday (01Jan12) by addressing a sold out house and paying tribute to the show's cast and crew with a touching tribute.


He said, "I leave this show tonight terrified by the fact I may never find another like it."


Radcliffe also honored his co-star, John Larroquette, who also leaves the production, by stating, "You are like a funny, angry version of Buddha and I'm very fortunate to call you a friend."


The two stars will be replaced by Darren Criss and Beau Bridges this week (beg02Jan12).
