Power, sex, ambition, greed.... just another day at the office in this classic comical look at big business in the early 1960's.
Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder. A time filled classic gem that took Broadway by storm, winning both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize. How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying boasts an exhilarating score full of sparkling tunes and production numbers.
This effervescent musical follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying" to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive. Along the way he has to avoid the lurking dangers of getting stuck in the mailroom, the Boss's mistress, the office party, backstabbing, co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.
An irreverent and tuneful romp, jam-packed with sly, swift and sharp jabs to the funny bone! Full of entertaining characters, such as the sexy Hedy La Rue, Bud Frump the conniving nephew of the boss, and a company boss (JB Biggley) who is a closet knitter to help deal with marital stress!
