Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever satire of life on the corporate ladder!
J. Pierpont Finch is a lowly window cleaner with dreams of making it big in the business world. After finding a copy of the book "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying," Finch decides to apply the tactics in the book to his own life. Soon, he is climbing the corporate ladder from window washer to mailroom clerk 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. This tune-filled comic gem that took Broadway by storm, boasts an exhilarating score by Frank Loesser, including "I Believe in You," "Brotherhood of Man" and "The Company Way."
How to Succeed… won the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama (1962).
