Lucky Stiff – A Musical Murder Mystery Farce! This coming spring, the fabulous and talented Manitoba Dentists will be performing the hit musical comedy, LUCKY STIFF from May 4th – May 7th at the U of W Asper Centre for Film and Theatre. Based on the novel, The Man Who Broke The Bank at Monte Carlo by Michael Butterworth, this hilarious story revolves around an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing off his uncle as alive, Harry Witherspoon stands to inherit $6,000,000. If not, the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn…or else his uncles gun-toting ex! Written by the Tony Award-winning writing team of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, LUCKY STIFF features a tuneful score backed by a small rock combo orchestra, an ensemble cast of zany characters and is a winner of the Richard Rodgers Award and Washingtons Helen Hayes Award for Best Musical. LUCKY STIFF is a murder mystery farce of mistaken identities, millions in diamonds and a wheelchair-bound corpse that is sure to leave audiences dying of laughter.
