Move over Mad Men, Swanky, Stylish 60’s Satire Snaps onto the Stage at Goodspeed

Goodspeed Musicals’How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying runs through Nov. 28.

In this hysterical satire of American industry, an ambitious window-washer uses a bit of charm, a lot of flattery and a little self-help manual called How to Succeed… to zoom up from mail room clerk to executive suite boss. A triumph of musical theatre with a happy and witty score that includes ”The Company Way,” “I Believe in You” and “Brotherhood of Man” the musical won seven Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

How to Succeed… features music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, and a book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert based on the book by Shepherd Mead.
