Power, sex, ambition, greed... it's just another day at the office.

From the authors of “Guys And Dolls” comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time. A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” 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, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," the boss' whiny, nepotistic nephew, the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.

Guaranteed to appeal to anyone who has ever worked in an office, the show boasts a show-stealing star role in its antihero, quirky, memorable secondary characters, a catchy, witty score that's bright, brassy and easy to learn and sing, and a wicked sense of humor that's as biting, unforgiving and on-target today as ever. Add to that an optional reduced orchestration and a scenic plot originally designed around simple, cartoonish sets, and you may find yourself mounting “How To Succeed...” without really trying!
