London: Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is said to be preparing for his musical debut on Broadway by taking dance classes and daily vocal lessons.

Radcliffe, 20, agreed to star in a revival of ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’ on the New York stage, and he has been training hard to ensure he gets the part right when the show opens next spring.

“He’s singing every day with a vocal coach in London and I’ve got my assistant putting him through his dance paces every other day,” the Daily Express quoted director Rob Ashford as saying.

“I’m covering all bases with Daniel - and he’s delivering,” he revealed.

And actress Rose Hemingway, who has been cast as Radcliffe’s onstage love interest, insists the actor is going to stun audiences.

“He’s been doing a lot of work and he’s going to surprise people. He’s not afraid to learn how to do things,” she added.
