Based on "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying" by Shepard Mead​

Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder. A tune-filled comic gem that took Broadway by storm, winning both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize, How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying boasts an exhilarating score by Frank Loesser, including "I Believe in You," "Brotherhood of Man" and "The Company Way."


A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, How to Succeed follows the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch, who climbs the corporate ladder from lowly window washer to high-powered executive.  Along the way he tackles such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant "company man," office infidelities, backstabbing coworkers, the office party, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.
