Nick Jonas Gives Behind-the-Scenes Look at His ‘Business’
Nick Jonas has some big Broadway shoes to fill — but he seems up for the challenge! The former Disney star offered fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse at his role in ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.’
The clip opens up with Jonas in the makeup chair, his trademark curls slicked back into a retro ‘do. He’s getting ready for a photo shoot for his debut as J. Pierrepont Finch in the classic musical, and we get to witness Jonas try on his costume for first time. He’s as amazed as we are at the costume department’s wide array of bow ties. We imagine Chris Brown would love this play!
Jonas’ costar Rose Hemingway is excited to perform with Jonas. “He has tons of credits, he’s been on Broadway far more than I have — and he’s going to be a perfect Finch,” the perky redhead gushed. “It’s going to be a really good time. I’m excited!”
Her sentiments are completely mutual. “I’m really looking forward to working with Rose,” Jonas says of Hemingway. “She’s fantastic, I saw her in the show — her voice is just brilliant. I’ve been listening to the soundtrack to the show quite a bit. She’s amazing. She’s so talented, and it’s incredible that this is her Broadway debut!”
As far as tackling a role previously inhabited by Harry Potter himself Daniel Radcliffe and ‘Glee‘ heartthrob Darren Criss, Jonas isn’t nervous. He’s psyched! “It’s going to be fun to really dig in and make it my own, be one with the team,” he said. “From the bow tie to the suit to the onstage persona, to really own it and make it my version of J. Pierrepont Finch.”
