How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying - 2017 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More


Do you wish that your life was more successful? Do you yearn to reach the pinnacle of business and change the world for the better? Do you just love getting ahead?

Well, we have good news for you! This show is designed to tell you everything you need to know in the science of getting ahead. Follow J. Pierrepont Finch, played by Marc Pickering 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.
