Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, authors of “Once On This Island,” “My Favorite Year,” “Ragtime,” and the animated film, “Anastasia,” exploded on the musical theatre scene with this zany, offbeat, and very funny murder mystery farce about an unassuming English shoe salesman forced to take the corpse of his recently-murdered Atlantic City croupier uncle on a week-long vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn.
The proceedings are sheer lunacy as Harry comes up against his uncle’s insanely jealous and legally blind mistress, her much put-upon optometrist brother and Annabel Glick, a zealous representative from the Universal Dog Home determined to see Harry’s inheritance “go to the dogs.”
Originally played on a unit set, “Lucky Stiff” is an intimate show with extremely modest production requirements. A small ensemble cast has plenty to do, playing a variety of bizarre, memorable roles. Exuberant, energetic, and impeccably crafted, “Lucky Stiff” is above all fun, with a sly, contemporary sensibility.
