Lucky Stiff

Jan. 25 – Feb. 11, 2018
Tickets go on sale: Nov. 21, 2017

Book and Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens, Music by Stephen Flaherty

“Lucky Stiff” is an offbeat, hilarious musical murder mystery, complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds and a corpse in a wheelchair. The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn ... or his uncle's gun-toting, mob-connected ex-girlfriend. Featuring a tuneful Flaherty and Ahrens score, an ensemble cast of zany characters, “Lucky Stiff” is sure to charm and delight!
