Dirty Rotten Scoundrels: The Musical
Tuesday 31st July - Sunday 5th August 2018
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Two con men, a beautiful woman and the elite of the French Riviera collide in this sexy and irreverent farce.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM 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 11 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 a train, they attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
With a fantastic cast and live orchestra, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will be the talk of the town this summer! With only 8 performances in this beautifully intimate venue, book your tickets now!
