Tony Award winners Lynn Ahrens
and Stephen Flaherty
exploded on the musical theatre scene in 1988 with their first off-Broadway show, LUCKY STIFF. Based on the novel The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo
by Michael Butterworth, LUCKY STIFF is a zany, offbeat, and very funny murder mystery farce complete with
slamming doors, 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 Atlantic City uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing 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 else to the gun-toting wife of the casino owner! First produced at Playwrights Horizons off-Broadway (Richard Rodgers Award) the show later went on to win Washington's Helen Hayes Award for Best Musical, and is now performed frequently across the country.
