Lucky Stiff
Marietta Theatre Company
through March 5, 2022

Hurry, hurry, hurry and go see one incredible big stage show in this little theatre just off Marietta Square. Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty based this incredible number on Michael Butterworth’s The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo.

What a delight when you go to a local cabaret style playhouse only to be wowed away by the story, music, and acting of such a terrific ensemble. Stephanie Earle directs this one and Brian Osborne is working the music board, while a cast of ten players come on in more than 15 roles.

It is a crazy story about an old guy who leaves a lot of money to a nephew, but only if the young guy takes him to Monte Carlo, Remind you of Weekend with Bernie? I can’t go into the details of the family and the story line, as that would be akin to telling you how the food tasted before you tried it. I can just promise you that you will be overjoyed by the whole show.

While the cast wends their way through more than 20 numbers in two acts you will be thinking how this one could easily be playing in the Big Apple. Especially if you’ve been to Monte Carlo and seen that posh casino.

The play is staged at the Lyric Studio on the Square, 12 Powder Springs St. And they have goodies available and do observe Covid protocols. More info and tickets at
