From the authors of Guys And Dolls comes one of the most delightfully irreverent musicals of all time, a satire of big business and all it holds sacred.
Follow the rise of window-washer J. Pierrepont Finch, in his hilarious journey to chairman of the board at the World Wide Wicket Company, circa 1960, a ridiculous company where no one really knows what anyone else is doing. But when Finch meets his true love Rosemary, art mixes with business creating a combustible parody of the workings and morals of the business world and all the quirky characters in it.
Book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert. Music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. Based upon the book by Shepherd Mead.
