How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

September 10 – October 10, 2010 (No Show 9/17, 18 & 19)

With the help of an instructional guide, J. Pierrepont Finch is determined to succeed in business – without really trying. Encountering a corporate bigwig, a romantically-inclined secretary, a wily competitor, and a sexy ex-cigarette girl with ambitions of her own, the intrepid Finch dodges, parries and plans until victory is his. “How to Succeed…” is a comic masterpiece of satire and song, a loving and laughing tribute to the ambitious window washer in all of us.

About the Show:
Originally opening at the 46th Street Theatre (now the Richard Rodgers Theatre) on Broadway in October 1961, How To Succeed… ran for nearly 4 years and won seven Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle award, and the 1962 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In 1967, a film based on the musical was released by United Artists, with many of the original cast recreating their roles. A revival with Matthew Broderick and Megan Mullally was mounted 1995.  A new revival of How To Succeed… will be opening on Broadway in early 2011 starring Daniel Radcliffe as Finch.
