Take a Look at Scenes From Skylar Astin-Led How to Succeed...

The Kennedy Center production also featured Betsy Wolfe, Michael Urie, Michael McGrath, and more.

The Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying joined the Kennedy Center's Broadway Center Stage series for a short run from June 6 through 10.

With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and a book by Abe Burrows, Willie Gilbert, and Jack Weinstock, How to Succeed is a sendup of life on the corporate ladder, following the rise of J. Pierrepont Finch from lowly window washer to high-powered executive. The Kennedy Center cast featured Skylar Astin as Finch, Betsy Wolfe as Rosemary Pilkington, Michael Urie as Bud Frump, and Tony winner Michael McGrath as Mr. Twimble and Wally Womper, among other stage favorites.

Take a look at scenes from the musical, directed by Marc Bruni and choreographed by Tony nominee Denis Jones.
