Landor Theatre & Almost Normal Ltd cancel first week of LUCKY STIFF performances due to electrical difficulties.
The Landor Theatre and Almost Normal Ltd have had to cancel the entire first week of performances of their London revival of Flaherty and Ahren’s LUCKY STIFF due to open on Wednesday 1st February due to electrical difficulty at The Landor. Engineers are working on the problem and the production is due to open on Tuesday 7th February 2012 for previews.
In 1988 Ahrens and Flaherty exploded onto the musical theatre scene with Lucky Stiff, a classic musical farce, complete with slamming doors, mistaken identities, six million dollars in diamonds, and a corpse in a wheelchair.
The story revolves around Harry Witherspoon, an unassuming English shoe salesman, who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently murdered, Atlantic City casino managing, Uncle Tony on a vacation to Monte Carlo. Should he succeed in passing his uncle off as alive, he will inherit $6,000,000 but if he doesn’t the money goes to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn…or perhaps it will go to the gun-toting wife of the casino owner…? …but what’s the hen-pecked optometrist from New Jersey doing in the South of France… or the Arab…or the Italian? Something Funny’s Going On!
Featuring, James Winter (Jersey Boys) as Harry Witherspoon, Abigail Jaye (Evita) as Annabel Glick, Lucy Williamson (End Of The Rainbow) as Rita La Porta,Miles Western (Pageant) as Vincent Di Ruzzio, with Mark Hayden (The Mousetrap) as Luigi Gaudi, and Ryan Bernstein, Thomas Lloyd, Samantha Ridings andJenna Ryder-Oliver. The production is directed by Robert McWhir, with Musical Direction by Terence Penk and Choreography by James Houlbrooke.
The production boasts an impressive cast,
Lucky Stiff will now play for three weeks with a newly rescheduled press night on Thursday 9th February 2012.
