Bridgewater Man Directing Play at Edison Valley Playhouse


EDISON, NJ - Bridgewater resident Zita Geoffroy-Heinz will be directing a performance of “Lucky Stiff” at the Historic Edison Valley Playhouse, on Oak Tree Road in Edison.

The musical was recently made into a movie with Jason Alexander and Dennis Farina, and is a murder mystery farce that propels Harry, a mild mannered English shoe clerk, into a mix of a murdered Atlantic City croupier, his near-sighted jilted mistress, her hen-pecked brother and several hundred dogs. Harry will inherit $6 million if he can go on holiday with his uncle in Monte Carlo for a week, otherwise the money goes to the Universal Dogs Home of Brooklyn.

The play will have musical direction by Mark McGee, of Parlin, and choreography by BJ Solomon, of Scotch Plains. The musical stars Crystal Ann Bennett, of Flagstown; James Houston, of Bound Brook; Shannon Ludlum, of Whitehouse Station; S. Patrick Nugent, of Montclair; Lauren Rowland, of Budd Lake; Sandye Rudnitzky, of Edison; Will Sandoval, of Budd Lake; Lou Savarese, of Randolph; and Joe Zedeny, of East Windsor.
