A To-Die-For Musical Romp You Won’t Want To Miss!

Book and Lyrics: Lynn Ahrens

Music by: Stephen Flaherty

Directed by: Jeff Downing

When Harry Witherspoon, a down-and-out shoe salesman, learns that he stands to inherit six million dollars from a deceased uncle he’s never met, he can’t believe his luck. There’s only one catch. In order to inherit the money, Harry has to take his uncle’s dead body on the vacation of a lifetime! 

But as the unlikely pair set off for the French Riviera, Harry learns he’s not the only one chasing the cash. Hot on his tail are his uncle’s gun-toting girlfriend, her high-strung optometrist brother, a mysterious woman who seems to be following Harry’s every move, and a never-ending parade of colorful characters, who may or may not be in disguise! 

Part murder mystery, part wild goose chase, part romantic comedy, this hilarious musical farce of mistaken identities, millions in diamonds, and a wheelchair-bound corpse will leave you dying of laughter.

LUCKY STIFF is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.
