Ellen Harvey, who plays Miss Jones in the 2011 revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, recently chatted with on working alongside Daniel Radcliffe in the musical, as well as her first rehearsal with Dan for Brotherhood of Man last year. Harvey discussed her joy at dancing with Dan, and watching him and John Larroquette perform Grand Old Ivy.

"The first day of rehearsal was for “Brotherhood," and Daniel Radcliffe came up to me with great glee and said, "Wow, just wait till you see what he [director/choreographer Rob Ashford] has you doing! The guys are going to be tossing you back and forth."

Speaking of “Brotherhood of Man,” what an incredible and dynamic number to be a part of. What’s not to love? From my perspective, I’m the only dame in a sea of hunky men, I get to wear a gorgeous dress AND I get to dance with Dan. It is an absolute joy to share that stage with him nightly. I have never seen someone work as hard and be as passionate as Dan through the whole rehearsal process, and at every turn he continues to amaze me. (Personally I love watching “Grand Old Ivy” and feel lucky that the Tony Awards didn’t want to cut a hole in their stage so he and John Larroquette could perform that number instead!) Dan is one of those rare artists who will continue to evolve and shape everything he touches.
