How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying
Based on How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying by Shepherd Mead
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!
