Lucky Stiff at The Costa Mesa Playhouse

As a board member of The Costa Mesa Playhouse...I'm a proud to share with you our latest show...I do hope you'll come and see it. Directed by David Anthony Blair, who is also directing my one-woman show!  Don't miss it and please, feel free to pass this along to friends. VERY FUN show!

The Costa Mesa Playhouse presents the musical comedy “Lucky Stiff” from Feb. 8 through March 10, 2013.

Based on the novel, “The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo,” by Michael Butterworth, “Lucky Stiff” was the first collaboration between Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, who would go on to write the scores for “Ragtime” and “Seussical the Musical.”  Winner of the prestigious Richard Rodgers Production Award for new musicals after its off-Broadway debut in 1988, “Lucky Stiff” is a zany, offbeat murder mystery farce complete with slamming doors, mistaken identities, millions of dollars in diamonds, and a corpse in a wheelchair.  It tells the story of mild-mannered shoe clerk Harry Witherspoon, who stands to inherit six million dollars if he can successfully take the corpse of his late uncle on vacation to Monte Carlo for a week, but he isn't the only one who wants the money.

“Lucky Stiff” is directed by David A. Blair, with musical direction by Jo Monteleone and choreography by Tricia Bowman.  The cast includes Topher Mauerhan, Melissa Glasgow, Emily Price, Kyle Myers, Bruce Schechter, Daniel Berlin, Katelyn Spurgin, Tony Sanchez and Danielle MacInnis.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.  All tickets for the Friday, Feb. 8 Preview performance are $16.  For the Saturday, Feb. 9 Gala, which includes a dessert reception, tickets are $18 for students and seniors, and $20 general.  For all other performances, students and seniors are $16, general admission is $18, and groups of 10 or more are $13 each.  

Reservations can be made at (our website has temporarily changed from to .com) or by calling 949-650-5269.  The playhouse is located at 661 Hamilton Street in Costa Mesa.
