How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying is a tremendously fun and vibrant musical comedy about a window washer, J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a small handbook to teach him how to advance in the corporate world. With the help of an office secretary who takes an interest in him, he uses wit to schmooze his way to the top of the corporate ladder. A satire of office life in the 1950s, this must-see golden-age musical, with music and lyrics by the brilliant Frank Loesser, is filled with larger-than-life production numbers and numerous bombastic characters and is a guaranteed great time for all audiences.
