HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING

by Frank Loesser, Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert

"Power, sex, ambition, greed... it's just another day at the office. From the authors of Guys and Dolls comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musical comedies of all time. A satire of big business and all it holds sacred, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying 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 office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love."

Performances will run October 15 - 26 in Chan Auditorium (Business Administration Building).
