Daniel Radcliffe, song-and-dance man

Catching up with a few things after a week’s vacation, including the Tony Awards, which I wasn’t able to watch when the ceremony aired on the 12th. But I just spent four pleasant minutes watching Daniel “Harry Potter” Radcliffe leading an ensemble from the Broadway musical “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” in the number “Brotherhood of Man,” and I have to say — 100 points to Gryffindor! (Sorry, couldn’t resist. He must get that all the time.) Though Radcliffe, to my knowledge, had never performed in a musical before (and his sometimes shaky singing voice demonstrates that), he’s a surprisingly fine dancer, and the genuine, earnest delight he brings to the performance, like he’s just discovered something he loves to do, is a joy to watch. Nice to see him trying something so very different, as the “Potter” franchise comes to a close.
