"Ahrens and Flaherty should be cherished both for their promise and for their willingness to embrace musical comedy silliness without apologies." -New York Times

"The show marks the debut of a sensational pair of collaborators." -Bergen Record

"Delicious, zany throwback--pure frosting, but whipped to perfect consistency." -New York Post

"A wild and crazy sick joke set to music, it's a funny show!" -Newsday

LUCKY STIFF was the first Ahrens and Flaherty show to be produced. After hearing some of their work at an ASCAP songwriter's showcase, Ira Weitzman, head of musical theater development for Playwrights Horizons, invited the then-unknown team to work with him. After Ahrens and Flaherty won the prestigious Richard Rodgers Award, Playwrights Horizons (then under the artistic direction of Andre Bishop) agreed to produce it. LUCKY STIFF premiered on April 26, 1988, and was enthusiastically received. The original cast included Stephen Stout, Stuart Zagnit, Mary Testa and Julie White. In 1990, the show was presented regionally at the Olney Theater in Maryland, and was awarded the Helen Hayes Award for Best Musical. That production starred Evan Pappas, who would later re-team with Ahrens and Flaherty for MY FAVORITE YEAR. In 1993, six years after the show debuted, a cast album was finally produced and released on Varese Sarabande. Evan Pappas and Mary Testa reprised their roles, joined by Judy Blazer, Jason Graae and Barbara Rosenblat. The CD led to many more regional productions of the show.
