September 19 - October 13


From the Tony Award-winning musical team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Ragtime, Seussical), Lucky Stiff is a zany murder mystery musical farce based on the novel, “The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo” by Michael Butterworth, complete with slamming doors, mistaken identities, missing diamonds and a corpse in a wheelchair! Unassuming English shoe salesman Harry Witherspoon 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 stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn – or to the gun-toting wife of the casino owner.

Opening night is Friday, Sept. 20, and performances continue through October 13. Evening performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. Matinees are at 2 p.m. on Sundays, and on Saturday, September 28, October 5 and 12.
