Goodspeed revamping ‘Lucky Guy’

Musical comedy to get workshop production

“Lucky Guy” just got lucky — again.

The musical comedy, which has been produced more than once during the past 20 years of its development, will get revised again in a workshop production at Goodspeed Musicals’ second stage at the Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, Conn., May 14-June 14.

Tony Award-winner Gary Beach (Broadway’s “The Producers”) heads the 10-person cast of the show, which has book, music and lyrics by Willard Beckham. Warren Carlyle (“A Tale of Two Cities”) directs and choreographs.

The show, which was first produced in 1987 in Dallas and then in the ’90s in North Carolina, Maine and New Jersey, follows a singing cowboy in Nashville and the desperate attempts to get his prize-winning song.

The Goodspeed production has no commercial attachment, according to a theater spokesman.
