Even window washers need dreams, and J. Pierrepont Finch (That’s F-I-N-C-H to you) is one window washer that you won’t soon forget. He’s the motivated go-getter who is also the main character in the 1961 smash musical How to Get Ahead in Business Without Really Trying, (HTS) music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, based on the 1952 book originally titled The Dastard’s Guide to Fame and Fortune by Shepherd Mead. The surprise best seller caused Mead to write other How To’s including How To Succeed with Women, How To Succeed in Tennis and How To Live Like a Lord.
HTS, a Theatre Under the Stars (TUTS) production, shows the modern audience how the more things change, the more they stay the same, especially in the 1960s business world filled with nepotism, greed, competition, back-biting and desperate need to succeed.
