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 from lowly window washer to high-powered executive, tackling such familiar but potent dangers as the aggressively compliant “company man,” the office party, backstabbing co-workers, caffeine addiction and, of course, true love.

“This production of “How To Succeed…” is bright and witty, with a self-awareness that it shares with “The Book of Mormon,” the musical.” – Claire Martin

“…  As usual for Town Hall Arts musicals, the cast is professional and the choreography top notch, …  “How to Succeed” starts the new Town Hall Arts season off with a bang, and future performances look equally promising.” -Rosemary Fetter

“Voices are strong and staging is clever, reflecting Wells’ tongue-in-cheek perspective. He suggests that this is ‘Mad Men without the angst.’ This is a delightful production – sure to send one out smiling.”  – Sonya Ellingboe
