Nick Jonas is headed to the great white way!
After taunting fans an upcoming "big announcement," the 18-year-old shared his news on Twitter Wednesday: "So excited and honored to play the role of J. Pierrepont Finch in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying next year!"
Jonas will succeed Glee's Darren Criss and Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe playing the role. With the aid of a trusty self-help book, the window-washing character rises his way up the corporate ladder. The show was nominated for eight 2011 Tony Awards.
This won't be the teen idol's first time on stage. In 2010, he played he role of Marius in Les Miserables, and in 2011 was Link Larkin in Hairspray. He also completed numerous theater roles throughout his childhood.
But fans of the Jonas Brothers shouldn't lose hope! "The three of us are so thrilled to support each other in our individual projects knowing we'll come back together again one day," Nick Jonas reassured a fan on Twitter.
