Big Bucks: The Press Your Luck Scandal

by Brandon Sturiale

Ohio, 1984. An ice cream truck driver named Michael Larson discovers a flaw in America's most popular new game show. This quirky new musical tells his story, from the moment of inspiration to the surprising aftermath of his accomplishment. Big Bucks, no Whammies, stop!

This original musical (book, music, and lyrics by Brandon Sturiale) runs about 90 minutes, and features a cast of 7 and a 5-piece band. The script and score are complete and have been revised after a staged reading took place in front of a sold-out crowd in midtown Manhattan.
