Darren Criss Ignites 'How To Succeed' Box Office

'Glee' star's first-week ticket sales for Broadway musical reportedly outpacing those of 'Harry Potter' actor Daniel Radcliffe.

Darren Criss is very much succeeding in the business of starring in a hit Broadway musical. The "Glee" star is reportedly bringing in big numbers for "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."

Criss joined the show last week after "Harry Potter" actor Daniel Radcliffe wrapped up his shift, and reports that in his first week, he's already managed to nab $1.4 million in profits and fill 99.8 percent of seats at Al Hirschfeld Theatre. While Radcliffe brought in $1.9 million in profits in his final week in the show, Criss' take beats out Radcliffe's previous eight performances.

Once Criss finishes his stint, Nick Jonas will take over the lead role of J. Pierrepont Finch. When Radcliffe stopped by the MTV News offices recently, he shared that he had reached out to his successors.
