Life’s Little Book of Instructions

For J. Pierrpont Finch, life comes with an instruction manual. <i>How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying takes Finch from the newsroom to the conference room and beyond. At every turn, the magical tome tells Finch just how to manipulate each accident to his advantage, coerce every coincidence to his betterment, and exploit every opportunity, no matter how tricky he has to be. The award-winning Broadway musical coming to the Count de Hoernle Theatre on Thursday will certainly not leave you with any high-minded lessons in morality, but let’s face it: Nobody likes getting those anyway. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Tickets cost $25 and $30; full-time students with ID get in for $10. The Count de Hoernle Theatre is located at 7901 N. Federal Highway, Boca Raton. Visit or call the box office at 561-241-7432.
Thu., June 23; Fridays-Sundays. Starts: June 23. Continues through June 26, 2011
KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
