Criss is booked for a three-week engagement and takes over the lead role of J. Pierrepont Finch from Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe beginning Jan. 3. Radcliffe's last performance in the project is on Jan. 1.

The musical's choreographer-director Rob Ashford said of Criss' participation, "When we learned of Darren's dream of performing on Broadway we knew we had found our Finch but presumed his Glee schedule would eliminate any chance to work with him

"We are ecstatic and grateful to Ryan Murphy and his Glee team at 20th Century Fox TV for helping to make both Darren's and our dream come true."
