This post on the Broadway World message board is claiming that Darren will be starring in a tv movie of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and that this will likely be announced soon. No idea how true it is so take it with a grain of salt, will update if the OP posts any further clarification.

This is really good news for Darren. The average ticket price ranking is particularly good since it shows people are willing to pay full price to see him, as opposed to buying discounted tickets (and thus the theatre getting less money). I’d say it’s a safe bet that he’ll get more Broadway offers.

Darren’s run is still selling well by the looks of things. The fact that they’re running out of rush tickets at least some days is also a good sign.
