Trailer: ‘Lucky Stiff' - Coming Soon

Directed by Christopher Ashley, starring Dominic Marsh, Nikki M. James, Pamela Shaw, Jason Alexander and Dennis Farina.

I was vaguely aware this musical was becoming a movie, but completely missed the trailer release from way earlier in the year. Anyway, ‘Stiff’ is a fun if modest musical from Ahrens and Flaherty, who deserve a much bigger profile than what they currently have. I think this could be a fun romp on screen, but the trailer is too poorly put together to gauge if it will be. Now the real question is when are we going to get a big screen ‘Ragtime,’ because that would be amazing.

So there’s a ‘Lightning Thief’ musical playing in NY and tickets are totally free?

This 4-min. musical commercial for Old Navy is really weird (because it co-stars the Grimace*), but the music is from Pasek and Paul and is quite listenable.

*Not actually the Grimace.

Of course she did.

This could actually be good. The show (and book series) has the right amount of camp to transfer to the stage.
