Elwood P. Dowd insists on including his friend Harvey in all of his sister Veta's social gatherings. Trouble is, Harvey is an imaginary six-and-a-half-foot-tall rabbit. To avoid future embarassment for her family - and especially for her daughter, Myrtle Mae - Veta decides to have Elwood committed to a sanitarium. At the sanitarium, a frantic Veta explains to the staff that her years of living with Elwood's hallucination have caused her to see Harvey also, and so the doctors mistakenly commit her instead of her mild-mannered brother. The truth comes out, Veta is freed, and the search is on for Elwood, who eventually arrives at the sanitarium of his own volition, looking for Harvey. But it seems that Elwood and his invisible companion have had a strange influence on more than one of the doctors. Only at the end does Veta realize that maybe Harvey isn't so bad after all.

WHAT THE CRITICS SAID

"The authors of Lucky Stiff, Lynn Ahrens (book and lyrics) and Stephen Flaherty (music), should be cherished both for their promise and for their willingness to embrace old-style musical-comedy silliness and romance without apologies." - New York Times

"Lynn Ahrens' lyrics are so hilarious and blend so well with Stephen Flaherty's smart melodies that it's easy to see the great promise many musical theater folk found in the 1988 Off-Broadway run of their first effort, Lucky Stiff." - SFGATEcom

"Zany, off-beat, and very funny... a sight to behold." - The Examiner
