How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying



Now entering its 83rd season, Blue Hill Troupe presents How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, featuring music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert. Each year Blue Hill Troup produces a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta in the Spring and a musical in the Fall, with proceeds benefitting a different New York City charity. Proceeds from How to Succeed... benefit The New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. A few fun "Loesser"-known facts about the show: - In addition to winning multiple Tony Awards, the original production won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama -- only the fourth awarded to a musical. - The original production ran for over three years, with 1,417 performances, closing in March of 1965, making it the fifth-longest running musical of that time and Frank Loesser's longest running musical. - Robert Morse and Matthew Broderick both won Tony awards for their portrayals of J. Pierpont Finch, 34 years apart.
