A hapless shoe salesman named Harry discovers that his dearly departed uncle, a New Jersey casino owner, has left him $6 million. But there’s a catch; he must first take his uncle’s body to Monte Carlo for that last trip of a lifetime. Why should a stiff be denied the joys of skydiving, snorkeling and around-the-clock roulette? If Harry fails to fulfill his uncle’s posthumous instructions exactly, the bucks go to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn. From the team that created Once On This Island and Ragtime, Lucky Stiff is an audience charmer.

The Humans MARCH 14–23 In 2016, a play opened on Broadway that would join the ranks of Death of a Salesman, Long Day’s Journey into Night, and August: Osage County as one of the great plays to examine the American family. This play went on to win the Tony Award for Best Play of 2016. The Humans is a play about the average family’s Thanksgiving, filled with fun, frustration, love, loss, turkey, therapy, and the complex range of human emotions that usually accompanies the holiday. Some of us dread it, some of us look forward to it all year, and most of us do both. This year, the Irish, three-generation Blake family is celebrating in the Chinatown apartment of youngest daughter Brigid. It’s bound to be a strange and uncanny evening wrought with psychological hubbub and a wildly good time.
