Me: I'm going to see How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying tonight.

Mom: Oh? Who's in it?

Me: Well, Daniel Radcliffe's starring.

Mom: *silence*

Me: The guy who plays Harry Potter?

Mom: *silence*

Me: And also John Larroquette.

Mom: Ooooooooh, John Larroquette!

She is so old. But anyway, I saw it last night, and it was pretty awesome!

Daniel Radcliffe doesn't really have a Broadway-ready voice, but it was a nice one, and while he might need to work on his stage presence (a lot of film/TV actors don't instantly transition to the exaggerated movements and expressions needed on stage), he had a lot of really funny moments. I actually think dancing is his strong suit, probably because he seems like a ball of jumpy energy when he's merely at rest.

All the other actors were really good, including Larroquette, but the guy playing Bud Frump totally stole the show. Also, he was wearing horn-rimmed glasses, which is something I typically find pretty irresistible. In any case, highly recommended if you get a chance to see it!
