The actors from the Harry Potter movies — Rickman played Severus Snape and Radcliffe was Potter himself — are appearing on Broadway concurrently. Radcliffe spent his night off from the revival of “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” taking in a preview of “Seminar,” the new Theresa Rebeck play in which Rickman plays a once-famous novelist who mercilessly baits and badgers a group of aspiring writers. "Seminar" opens Nov. 20; Radcliffe is with "How to Succeed" until Jan. 1.

And he not only has the time but the talent to accomplish much on the stage.”
