Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life struggling up the corporate ladder. How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who sizes up a large company and outsmarts and outcharms the seasoned employees to rise from lowly mail clerk to high-powered executive. This toe-tapping classic satirizes company compliance, office parties, backstabbing coworkers, misogyny, nepotism, charisma, and of course, caffeine addiction. Come back to the theatre with this classical work of musical comedy; an irreverent and tuneful romp, jam-packed with sly, swift and sharp jabs to the funny bone!
