OVERVIEW

Now, in its second smash year, How to Succeed welcomes a bright new star back to Broadway‘s music sensation NICK JONAS (Les Miserables, Beauty and the Beast, Annie Get Your Gun)! Youll delight to his riotous rise up the corporate ladder as he struggles to juggle the promotion, the corner office and–of course–the girl. Joining him are Emmy Award winner BEAU BRIDGES (Brothers and Sisters, The Fabulous Baker Boys, The Descendants), MICHAEL URIE (Ugly Betty), TAMMY BLANCHARD (Life with Judy Garland) and ROSE HEMINGWAY in this charming production that The New Yorker calls “a first-rate, high-stepping musical! This show is luminous!”
