About: Lucky Stiff

Almost-normal Ltd announces cast for a four week run of ‘Lucky Stiff’ at The Landor Theatre in February 2012!

Almost-normal in association with The Landor Theatre present
Book & Lyrics by LYNN AHRENS
Based on “The Man Who Broke The Bank at Monte Carlo” by Michael Butterworth
First produced by Playwrights Horizons Inc. off-Broadway in 1988. Winner of the 1988 Richard Rodgers Production Award
Presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LIMITED on behalf of MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL of New York

If you enjoyed Tony Award winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty’s Ragtime at The Landor Theatre in September, you may be interested in seeing the show that started it all. In 1988 Ahrens and Flaherty exploded onto the musical theatre scene with Lucky Stiff, a classic musical farce, complete with slamming doors, mistaken identities, a stash of diamonds, and…a corpse in a wheelchair!

Harry Witherspoon, an unassuming English shoe salesman, is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered, Atlantic City casino managing Uncle Tony on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, he will inherit $6 million, but if he doesn’t the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn…or perhaps it will go to the gun-toting wife of the casino owner?? But what’s the hen-pecked optometrist from New Jersey doing in the South of France dressed as a maid…or the Arab…or the Italian? Definitely, Something Funny’s Going On!

Featuring, James Winter (Jersey Boys) as Harry Witherspoon, Abigail Jaye (Evita) as Annabel Glick, Lucy Williamson (End Of The Rainbow) as Rita La Porta, Miles Western (Pageant) as Vincent Di Ruzzio, with Mark Hayden (The Mousetrap) as Luigi Gaudi, and Ryan Bernstein, Thomas Lloyd, Samantha Ridings and Jenna Ryder-Oliver. The production is directed by Robert McWhir, with Musical Direction by Terence Penk and Choreography by James Houlbrooke.

“A much needed antidote to the gloom and gargantuan extravagance of so much of our current musical theatre…” Frank Rich, New York Times

“Delicious zany throwback…” Marilyn Stasio, New York Post

“Lucky Stiff gives a new lease on life to the musical farce…” Peter Wynne, Bergen Record

“This is a real giggle and guffaw show, long on craziness, full of fun, demanding nothing more than that you have a good time. And you will.” Gloria Cole, United Press International
