The con is on! With plenty of wit, charm, and double entendres galore, the musical comedy ‘DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS’ is one enjoyably silly romp. A couple of con men have taken to swindling the riches off of easily-seduced women in the French Riviera. Suave ladies’ man Lawrence Jameson, whose seemingly opulent lifestyle and Brit phrasing act as an enticingly posh smokescreen for his ability to romance women from their cash. Freddy Benson is a younger, less-sophisticated yet still brilliant con man who tugs on women’s heartstrings of sympathy to gain their trust. The men devise a bet: the first man to successfully swindle $50,000 from the newly-arrived “soap queen” Christine Colgate wins the right to stay in town. With rousing musical numbers, a few outrageous sequences, and, of course, goofy antics, the comedy stylings are a lively musical comedy bust-your-gut laugh-riot.
Credits: Based on the 1998 film comedy, the show features a book by Jeffrey Lane and music and lyrics by David Yazbeck.
