Aurora’s Paramount Theatre, just outside of Chicago, will present the world premiere of the new musical The Secret of My Success, based on the 1987 Universal Pictures film starring Michael J. Fox, during its 2019–2020 season.
Holiday Inn’s Gordon Greenberg will direct the production, which will be seen February 12–March 29, 2020, at the Illinois venue. Greenberg also co-wrote the book for the new musical with Steve Rosen (The Other Josh Cohen); the score is by Chicago writers Michael Mahler and Alan Schmuckler.
The Secret of My Success concerns Brantley Foster, a young ambitious Midwesterner, who moves to New York City to start his dream job at a major corporation, only to be laid off on the very first day. In his relentless enthusiasm to succeed, Brantley finds himself tangled up in a sidesplitting scheme in which he assumes the identity of rising executive Carlton Whitfield.
