In this delightful musical, a shoe salesman must pass off his dead uncle as alive and well in order to inherit six million dollars. If he can’t, then all the money might go to the Universal Dog Home of Brooklyn and this particular shoe salesman hates dogs.  It’s a hilarious murder-mystery farce complete with slamming doors, mistaken identities and a corpse in a wheelchair. Winner of the Richard Rogers Award for Best Musical in 1988.
