How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying

The full cast has now been announced for the revival of 1961 Broadway musical comedy HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING... and they're all now on #StageFaves too!

Producers have announced the full cast for Benji Sperring's new production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, which runs at Wilton's Music Hall from 8 to 22 April 2017, with a press night on 11 April.

This rollicking romp of a musical follows the journey of J. Pierrepoint Finch in 1950s New York as he strives to reach the top of the corporate ladder and change the world. Armed with his copy of the self-help book How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying, Finch joins the World Wide Wicket Company as a window cleaner, with his sights set on the dizzying heights of being Chairman of the Board. But nothing is ever easy, even when you know everything there is to know about the science of success…

Joining the already announced Marc Pickering as Finch, Hannah Grover, Lizzii Hills and Geri Allen are: Olivier-nominated Andrew C Wadsworth as big boss JB Biggley, Maisey Bawden as the uncompromising Miss Jones, Daniel Graham takes on the role of apathetic and arrogant Bud Frump, Richard Emerson as Mr Twimble, and Matthew Whitby and Nuwan Hugh Perera in multiple roles. 

How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying has music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, and book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert based on the book by Shepherd Mead. This new London production is directed by Benji Sperring, whose other recent London hits include The Toxic Avenger and Shock Treatment, and presented by Nicholas Thompson Productions and Tarquin Productions by arranged with Music Theatre International (Europe) Ltd. 

Holly Kendrick, Executive Director at Wilton’s comments:

“I can’t wait to see such an iconic and loved Broadway show come to Wilton’s – this is the biggest London production since the show opened here in 1963 and we’re thrilled to be part of it. It’s wonderful to have such a talented cast of actors to bring it to life.”
