Power, sex, ambition, greed... it's just another day at the office in this classic musical satire. Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder. A tune-filled comic gem that took Broadway by storm winning both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize, HOW TO SUCCEED... boasts an exhilarating score by Frank Loesser including I Believe in You, Brotherhood of Man, Coffee Break, and The Company Way. HOW TO SUCCEED... follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook 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 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, this show will leave you wanting more!
