The book promises readers that they can climb the ladder quickly and simply, and as it turns out, The Worldwide Wicket Corporation, whose windows Finch has been washing, would be the perfect type of business. Once inside the company, Finch meets secretary Rosemary Pilkington (Michele Lee) who sees him as an unassuming man who’ll be eaten alive by the corporate world. Following the book’s advice however, Finch begins to work his way through the ranks, rising to vice President in next to no time.

Is he really on the way to the top, or on the brink of tumbling back down?

How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying was one of only eight musicals to ever win the Pulitzer Prize for drama, alongside titles including South Pacific and Rent.
