'How To Succeed' Revival Marks First Anniversary
No, I didn't see the original How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying (aka How To Succeed) when it first opened on Broadway in 1961. In fact, I didn't even see the pre-Broadway tryout of the show in Philadelphia that year.
But I did see the show when it was revived many years later at the Kennedy Center in Washington with Matthew Borderick in the starring role and that revival did move onto Broadway with much success.
Now, the latest revival (originated with Daniel Radcliffe in the starring role and now starring Nick Jonas) is celebrating its first anniversary on Broadway.
And the show also stars Bea Bridges who is currently seen on screen in The Descendents.
The show is simply a perennial favorite -- a clever, cartoony send-up of the business world and an affectionate look at the early 1960s.
In honor of the first anniversary of the revival, we thought you might like to see this video.
