How to Succeed in Business - Auditions


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 to climb the corporate ladder.  With songs by Frank Loesser, this comic gem won both the Tony Award for Best Musical and a Pulitzer Prize.  The exhilarating score includes “I Believe in You,” “Brotherhood of Man” and “The Company Way.”
