How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying
A vivacious satire on sharp-practice and ruthless ambition in the world of big business from the writer and composer of Guys and Dolls
. With the aid of his bible, 'How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying', J. Pierpoint Finch rises irresistibly from window-cleaner to Chairman of the Board at World Wide Wickets, breaking hearts and stabbing backs along the way. Frank Loesser's score bristles with snappy numbers like 'Coffee Break', 'A Secretary is Not a Toy' and 'Been a Long Day', the exuberant 'Brother of Man' and the gorgeous 'I Believe In You'. The show won seven Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for drama when it opened on Broadway.Performers Marc Pickering (J Pierrepont Finch), Hannah Gover (Rosemary), Lizzii Hills (Hedy La Rue), Geraldine Allen (Smitty), Andrew C Wadsworth (JB Biggley), Maisey Bawden (Miss Jones), Daniel Graham (Bud Frump), Richard Emerson (Twimble), Nuwan Hugh Perera (Male Chorus/Multirole), Matthew Whitby (Brat/Peterson/Multirole).
