How To Succeed In Business
Without Really Trying
Book by Abe burrows, Jack Weinstock, and Willie Gilbert
Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser
A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, this musical follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch who uses a little handbook coincidentally titled How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying to climb the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive. He ends up tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.
