How to Succeed…
is a provocative musical satire of 1960's corporate life, from the Tony-winning composer of Guys and Dolls
. Award-winning director Jay Manley helms this Mad Men
-esque comedy, with musical direction by Catherine Snider and choreography by Dottie Lester-White.
Following the instructions of a "how-to" manual, young window washer J. Pierrepont Finch plans each hilarious step of his meteoric rise from the mailroom to the boardroom of the World-Wide Wicket Company in New York City. Pairing sometimes unorthodox business practices with a disarming grin, Ponty Finch charms his way up the corporate ladder, impressing company President J.B. Biggley, battling Biggley's lazy nephew Bud Frump, and winning the heart of secretary Rosemary Pilkington along the way. How to Succeed…
is packed with catchy favorites such as I Believe in You
, Happy to Keep His Dinner Warm
, The Company Way
, Been a Long Day
, and the rousing Brotherhood of Man
