Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.
Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After meeting on the French Riviera, they attempt to work together, but soon decide the town isn’t big enough for the both of them. They agree on a settlement: the first to extract $50,000 from young heiress Christine Colgate wins, and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing and guessing to the end!
