Mr. Clark taught high school theatre and technical theatre for 39 years, directed scores of student and community productions, founded the Pinole Young Actors and the City of Pinole's School of Performing Arts. Over the years he mentored dozens of actors and directors.

"The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo"

arrow down

Harry Witherspoon, a mild-mannered shoe salesman from London, is about to inherit six million dollars from his late Uncle Tony, as long as he takes Uncle's body on a final vacation to Monte Carlo. He's pursued by his uncle's "married to the mob" girlfriend, Rita, her hapless optometrist brother, Vinnie, and Annabel Glick, the relentless representative of Uncle Tony's favorite charity (who gets the money if Harry fails to execute his Uncle's will). This crazy farce is the first collaboration of Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, who went on to create My Favorite Year, Once On This Island, Seussical, The Musical and Tony Award Winner RAGTIME

WHAT THE CRITICS SAID

"The authors of Lucky Stiff, Lynn Ahrens (book and lyrics) and Stephen Flaherty (music), should be cherished both for their promise and for their willingness to embrace old-style musical-comedy silliness and romance without apologies." - New York Times

"Lynn Ahrens' lyrics are so hilarious and blend so well with Stephen Flaherty's smart melodies that it's easy to see the great promise many musical theater folk found in the 1988 Off-Broadway run of their first effort, Lucky Stiff." - SFGATEcom

"Zany, off-beat, and very funny... a sight to behold." - The Examiner
