With the final Harry Potter film coming out in July and his new Broadway show, “How to Succeed in Business,” opening, it’s going to be a busy summer for Daniel Radcliffe — perhaps too busy, as the musical’s run overlaps with the film’s promotional tour.

 

"This is the final film, so it's a big deal,” a source tells the New York Post. “They absolutely couldn't do it without their big star. But the theatre producers dug their heels in and said they wouldn't release Radcliffe unless Warner bought out the entire theatre for the nights they need him."

 

The studio reportedly went ahead and bought every seat in the theatre for five nights in a row, at a cost of about $500,000.
