London Studio Centre — Seedtime presents Lucky Stiff

 

A zany, offbeat, and very funny murder mystery farce.
Based on the novel The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, this is a classic musical 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.

Book and lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Music by Stephen Flaherty

Based on "The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo" by Michael Butterworth.
