More zany gangster characters than Guys and Dolls and twice the stage action. A nonstop-laugh parody of lovable cliché racketeers: Big Al, Little Al, Ma Cribbs, Mad Dog Myrtle, Two Gun Tommy, Petty-larceny Jane and many more. Chicago jazz, ragtime, blues and a bouncy comedy chorus are interwoven throughout the lively, suspenseful story line. Song lyrics are delightful. Through a clever plot twist, Steve Jenkins, the writer, gets pulled into his own story. Lucky Hudson, his crime busting hero, puts him right into the comic underworld of nightclubs and back alleys. Steve is tricked into prison and death row for a murder he never committed. He escapes at the last moment and, with Lucky’s help, discovers the surprise identity of the godfather, "Big Boss." The wildly imaginative ending caps a perfect blend of song, story and action. Eight great songs including: "Lucky, Lucky Hudson," "A Wild Imagination," "Welcome to the Paradise Club," "The Almighty Dollar," "The Hollihock Hong Kong Babies," "It’s a Jungle Out There," "He’s Guilty," "The Juice" and several reprises. Superb theatre, opportunities for outlandish gangster costumes and hilarious dialog. A great box-office show!
