Actor Daniel Radcliffe is busy taking dance classes and daily vocal lessons to prepare for his musical debut on Broadway.

The Broadway musical production is named as How to succeed in business without really trying?

Rob Ashford, who will be directing the remake of the 1961 Pulitzer Prize-winning musical, claims Daniel, who is set to star as J. Pierrepont Finch, a young window cleaner, is keen to impress.

"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. I'm covering all bases with Daniel and he's delivering," contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.

Actress Rose Hemingway, who will play the role of Rosemary Pilkington, Daniel's on-stage girlfriend, was just as amazed by the actor's talent.

"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," Hemingway said.
