Frank Loesser & Abe Burrows'
How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying
Fri, Jun 19 - Sun, Jun 28
Jaqua Concert Hall, The Shedd Institute
Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of the competitive dog-eat-dog world of 1950s corporate America and all its foibles and worst tendencies. A tune-filled comic gem that took Broadway by storm when it premiered in 1961 (winning both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize) and knocked 'em dead again in 1995 and 2011, How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying boasts a hilarious book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert and an exhilarating score by Frank Loesser that includes such priceless songs as “I Believe in You", "A Secretary Is Not A Toy", “Brotherhood of Man", and “The Company Way".
H2$ (as insiders fondly call it!) follows the story follows the meteoric 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, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man”, the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love. It is an irreverent and tuneful romp, jam-packed with sly, swift, and sharp jabs to the funny bone!
