Lucky Stiff

By Lynn Ahrens, music by Stephen Flaherty

Directed by Rob Connor

Lucky Stiff is a madcap, hilarious romp of a musical that follows Harry Witherspoon's journey from England to Monte Carlo. Based on Michael Butterworth's novel, The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo, Harry receives the unexpected news that he has inherited a fortune from his late Uncle Anthony, but the bequest is not without conditions and complications and others interested in the inheritance. With mistaken identities, love interests, disguises, farcical chases and an omnipresent corpse, Lucky Stiff is an offbeat murder mystery with a difference.
