When a restless, creative, and ambitious window washer named J. Pierrepont Finch happens upon a book entitled “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying,” he decides to begin his own rise up the corporate ladder. With the book’s instructions and a dose of his own cleverness, Finch starts by landing a job in the mailroom at the World Wide Wicket Company. Along the way, he encounters aggressively compliant “company men,” backstabbing coworkers, caffeine addiction, office politics, and—of course—true love.

A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning musical is an irreverent and tuneful romp, jam-packed with sly, swift, and sharp jabs to the funny bone.
