Nick Jonas Debuts in ‘How to Succeed’ on Broadway

Nick Jonas was a hit on his first night in a leading role on Broadway. The 19-year-old reportedly almost sold out his debut in "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" at NYC's Al Hirschfield Theatre, which seats 1,400. Nick follows in the footsteps of "Glee's" Darren Criss and "Harry Potter's" Daniel Radcliffe, who have also played J. Pierrepont Finch in a revival of the musical comedy, which has been on the Great White Way for 11 months and counting.

The "Camp Rock" cutie had quite the support system for the start of his six month-stint. According to Entertainment Weekly, which also offered a video sneak peek of the performance, fans began lining up outside the venue on Tuesday morning, and Nick's famous bros Joe and Kevin, as well as his younger sibling Frankie, were there to wish him well backstage. Joe even applauded him via Twitter, writing, "Wow! @nickjonas and the cast of How to Succeed killed it tonight. I couldn't be more proud of nick."

Nick is proving to be quite the multi-talented guy. Besides his current gig, he's also acted in a production of "Les Miserables" in London's West End and in several other shows on Broadway, recorded and acted as one-third of the Jonas Brothers with Joe and Kevin, and released a solo project with his band, Nick Jonas & the Administration. What do you think Nick should do next?

Meanwhile, devotees of Nick's older brother Joe will want to catch his guest appearance on the sitcom "Hot in Cleveland." It premieres at 10 p.m. ET/PT Wednesday on TV Land.
