Appearing at the Wilton’s Musical Hall from 8 to 22 April 2017, further casting for Benji Sperring’s revival of Broadway musical classic How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying has been announced.
Joining the previously announced Marc Pickering, Hannah Grover, Lizzi Hills and Geri Allen will be: Andrew C Wadsworth (JB Biggley), Maisey Bawden (Miss Jones) and Daniel Graham (Bud Frump). Meanwhile, Richard Emerson (Mr Twimble), Matthew Whitby and Nuwan Hugh Perera are to feature in multi-role parts.
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 (Les Misérables, Sleepy Hollow, Calendar Girls) 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.
Featuring a score by Frank Loesser, composer of Guys and Dolls and directed by Benji Sperring (Toxic Avenger, Shock Treatment), How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying sees pleasure and business mix in this multi-award winning musical.
The production is designed by Mike Lees, with musical direction by Benjamin Ferguson, choreography by Lucie Pankhurst and lighting by Nic Farman.
