Lucky Stiff

  • When Harry’s uncle is murdered, his dull life is about to be turned upside down with an inheritance of $6million. There’s just one catch — he must first take his uncle’s embalmed body to Monte Carlo on a final trip of a life time. He is propelled into a world of casinos, jilted lovers and a hunt for lost diamonds. If he fails in passing off his uncle as alive, the cash goes to the Universal Dogs home of Brooklyn, and they’re keeping a very close eye on him…

    A hilarious and offbeat musical farce, Lucky Stiff combines hysterical lyrics and a tuneful score from Tony Award-winners Flaherty and Ahrens (Ragtime and Disney’s Anastasia), with an ensemble of zany characters and fast-paced comedy.

    “…MKEC Productions, laid out their credentials in 2015 when they scored a sell-out success with The Baker’s Wife at the venue. A year later they’re back and they’re on a roll…Lucky Stiff is dead funny from start to finish.”

Put together by MKEC Productions, we have the added of benefit of it being performed by a tremendous cast of singer actors…A revival we never thought we would see. Don’t miss this rare treat!”
