“How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” is a delightful musical satire of corporate life and office politics, packed with memorable songs.  The Whitman cast was superb and musicians pitch-perfect as they treated the community to three wonderful performances last weekend. How to Succeed centers on a young window-cleaner, J. Pierrepont Finch, wonderfully played by Trevor Ewald, who begins a meteoric rise from the mailroom to Vice President of Advertising at the World-Wide Wicket Company. Finch's unorthodox and morally questionable business practices jeopardize not only his career but also his romance with Secretary Rosemary Pilkington, perfectly cast for the incredibly talented Caitlin Dermody.
