West Coast Players present Lucky Stiff – a musical

Haters gotta hate and I hate musicals.

I never would have attended had I known the West Coast Players presentation of Lucky Stiff was a musical.

Notice that nowhere in the advertising nor the website nor the ticket site is this stage play presented as a musical.

The songs were great despite the mediocre singing.

The story was funny although despite the lack-luster acting.

And I thoroughly enjoyed the evening despite myself.

Would I go again, probably not, but then I hate musicals.


In this offbeat, hilarious murder mystery farce, complete with mistaken identities, six million bucks in diamonds, and a corpse in a wheelchair, an unassuming English shoe salesman stands to inherit a fortune IF….he can succeed in passing his DEAD uncle off as alive.
