Skylar Astin will rise to the top of the business ladder this spring. The stage-and-screen star has been announced to take on the central role of J. Pierrepont Finch in the Kennedy Center's upcoming production of the Tony- and Pulitzer-winning musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Astin will be joined by recent Waitress star Betsy Wolfe as Rosemary and upcoming Torch Song headliner Michael Urie reprising his Broadway-debut turn as Bud Frump. D.C. stage veteran Nova Payton will take on role of Miss Jones. Directed by Marc Bruni and choreographed by Tony nominee Denis Jones, How to Succeed will play the Kennedy Center's Eisenhower Theater from June 6-10.
