News   Lucky Stiff, with Jonelle Allen, Jason Graae and Marissa Perry, Gets Benefit Concert in CA
 
Tony Award-nominated actress Jonelle Allen, of Two Gentlemen of Verona, Jason Graae and Hairpsray's Marissa Perry star in a staged reading of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty's musical comedy Lucky Stiff at The Laguna Playhouse June 7.

The 7 PM show will benefit Musical Theatre University, a comprehensive training ground for musical theatre performers from across the nation. Founder David Green's alumni include Tony nominees Susan Egan (Beauty and the Beast) and Matthew Morrison (Light In The Piazza and "Glee"), Stephanie J. Block (9 to 5 and Pirate Queen), Krysta Rodriguez (The Addams Family), Lindsay Mendez (Marvelous Wonderettes and Everyday Rapture), Anneleise VanDerPol (Beauty and the Beast and Vanities) and more. Lucky Stiff, a musical comedy farce, is based on the novel "The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo" by Michael Butterworth. The story concerns an unassuming English shoe salesman who is forced to take the embalmed body of his recently-murdered Atlantic City uncle on a vacation to Monte Carlo. A windfall of $6 million is at stake.

All proceeds from the benefit production will support Musical Theatre University's International Youth Summer Stock program in Southern California.
