More zany gangster characters than Guys and Dolls adds up to twice the stage action! Plus, a score featuring Chicago jazz, ragtime, and blues sets the perfect tone for this lively, suspenseful storyline. Through a clever plot twist, up-and-coming teenage writer Steve Jenkins gets pulled into his own story. Lucky Hudson, his crime-busting hero, puts him right into the comic underworld of nightclubs and back alleys with a nonstop laugh parody of crooks and racketeers. Tricked into prison and death row for a murder he never committed, Steve 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.
