Wakefield Repertory Theatre Live In Studio

Lucky-Stiff-castYesterday, I had the pleasure of welcoming the Wakefield Repertory Theatre and their upcoming production of Lucky Stiff, a musical farce concerning dead bodies, a plethora of accents, mistaken identities, and a six million dollar inheritance at stake.

Prior to this interview, I had heard very little of this show, so I was excited to get to know the piece a bit more, and the combination of the silly, witty songs performed and the infectiously happy and energetic cast reeled me in immediately. The talented cast presented three songs: “Rita’s Confession”, a sultry and hilarious song about embezzlement and blame, “Good to Be Alive,” a song about carting around a dead man and appreciating the beauty of the country, and “Him, Them, It, Her,” about losing said dead man and the chaos that ensues.

I was in stitches the entire time I spent with the cast, who made this silly and fun show even more hilarious with their energy, timing, and clear love of the piece. We at Standing Room Only have live acts in the studio all year, but we really get to see some gems during Live Music Week. This cast was so excited to be here to help WERS celebrate Live Music Week and show their love for non-commercial radio.

It is only through the support of our listeners and the amazingly talented local groups that Standing Room Only can provide up to date, current music, information, and experiences. Lucky Stiff is a prime example of the talented artists right here in Boston, who Standing Room Only loves to support. The show is running April 12 through April 21 Wakefield-Lynnfield United Methodist Church in Wakefield
