Lucky Stiff

The film musical of Lynn and Stephen’s first off-Broadway show, “Lucky Stiff,” opened in New York City after screenings at the Hollywood Film Festival, London’s Raindance Film Festival and others. A musical farce in which a British shoe salesman inherits six million dollars from a dead uncle. There’s only one catch: in order to get the money, he has to take the dead body, prop it in a wheelchair and take it on one last spree to Monte Carlo. Chaos ensues.

The film is directed by Christopher Ashley, with screenplay by Lynn Ahrens and a song score by Ahrens + Flaherty, with additional underscoring by Jordan Seigel, Stephen and Tom Kitt. It features a new title song sung by Eric Idle.

Music director/conductor, Eric Stern
Music orchestrated by Michael Starobin

Released 24 July 2015 (USA)

“While the film is very much a madcap farce, ultimately, it’s a sweet love story. Pure entertainment value.”


Set in “the 1970s-ish”, the madcap antics and slow-burning romances play out with light-hearted camp and charm.”
