HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING

Opening Date : April 24, 2008
Theater : White Plains Performing Arts Center, White Plains, NY

Power, sex, ambition, greed…it’s just another day at the office. From the authors of GUYS AND DOLLS comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time. A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, this brilliant musical comedy follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who uses a little handbook called “How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying” to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive. Guaranteed to appeal to audiences of every kind, this perfect musical comedy is swift, sharp and jam-packed with rollicking tunes and hilarious characters. The songs are bright and brassy with a wicked sense of humor that’s as biting and on-target today as ever. HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING originally played for 1417 perfor- mances and an enormously successful revival was produced in 1995.

The production starred Matt Wilson, Nicholas Wyman and also starred Jill Abramowitz, Paul Aguirre, J. Davidson Anderson, Delaine Andrzejewski, Jessica Bircann,
