Having first premiered on Broadway in 1961, the musical has not been seen in London for over fifty years.

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying follows the story of J. Pierrepont Finch as he joins the World Wide Wicket Company and climbs his way to the top in New York City in 1950.

Follow J. Pierrepont Finch  as he rises from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, in this anarchic tuneful romp. Jam-packed with sly, swift, sharp humour, and with its tongue firmly placed in its cheek. If you have education, intelligence and ability, so much the better. But remember that thousands have reached the top without any of these qualities – even to the highest job in America. 

Featuring a score by Guys & Dolls composer Frank Loesser, the musical includes songs such as I Believe In You, Brotherhood of Man and Happy To Keep His Dinner Warm. 

This production will be directed by Benji Sperring and will star Marc Pickering as J. Pierrepont. The cast will also include Lizzii Hills and Geri Allen, with further casting yet to be confirmed.

How to Succeed in Business Without Even Trying will play at Wilton’s Music Hall from the 8th to the 22nd April. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://wiltons.org.uk/whatson/288-how-to-succeed-in-business-without-really-trying
