Mastered in HD! Big business means big laughs as Robert Morse (The Loved One) schemes and scams his way to the top in this bold and bawdy musical that celebrates the Great American Corporate Way and lampoons it at the same time. With musical supervision by the legendary Nelson Riddle (Pal Joey), this tune-filled comic gem is a goldmine of Frank Loesser (Guys and Dolls) songs. Written, produced and directed by David Swift (The Parent Trap) and based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway smash, this classic musical is bristling with humor, romance and song. The story charts the meteoric rise of an ambitious window washer (Morse) who, with the help of a simple guidebook, gets the job, gets the girl (Michele Lee, Knots Landing), gets the raise and gets the attention of the Big Boss (Rudy Vallee, The Palm Beach Story) himself - all by his second day at work. Now it's only a matter of hours before he goes from zero to CEO!

Critical Acclaim

"It’s a fast-moving, faster-talking joy with plenty of big laughs as Morse schemes his way up the corporate ladder in record time. The musical numbers never overwhelm the narrative and instead offer pockets of synchronized song and dance that keep viewers smiling and tapping their toes."
