Casting is announced for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre.
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.
It 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, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant company man, the boss’ whiny, nepotistic nephew, the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and true love.
The Show opened on Broadway in October 1961 with a run of 1417 performances, and in London’s West End in 1963. The most recent Broadway revival in 2011 starred Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) as J. Pierrepont Finch.
