As a recipe for non-stop laughs, it's hard to top the winning concoction of slamming doors + mistaken identities + $6 million in diamonds + a corpse in a wheelchair. Fortunately, all of those ingredients, and heaps more silliness besides, are whipped into Lucky Stiff, a comedic soufflé that leaves you hungry for more. The story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who's forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. If he succeeds in passing his uncle off as alive, he stands to inherit millions. If he gets caught, the money will be donated to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn -- or land in the hands of the casino owner's gun-toting wife. Written by Tony Award-winners Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty (Rocky, Seussical, Ragtime), the tunefully fun Lucky Stiff promises to make you die laughing when it hits Stagehouse Theatre.
