How to Succeed in Business
Without Really Trying

July 11-29, 2018

Book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock & Willie Gilbert
Music & Lyrics by Frank Loesser
Based on the Book by Shepherd Mead

Starring Frankie Grande

"Smartly hilarious! A not-to-be-missed summer treat!"

"Grande more than delivers! His Finch is utterly charming!"

— The Morning Call

Big business means big laughs in this delightfully clever lampoon of life on the corporate ladder. Join J. Pierrepont Finch, as he rises from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such dangers as backstabbing colleagues, office parties, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love!

This comic gem took Broadway by storm, winning the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize. Critic Walter Kerr called it "sneaky, cynical, irreverent, impertinent, sly, malicious, and lovely, just lovely!"

Broadway performer, TV personality and Muhlenberg alum Frankie Grande stars!
