The “dirty rotten” pandemic caused us to cancel this production two years ago, so we’re trying it again! Dirty Rotten Scoundrels 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 and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards. Lawrence makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. However, 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 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! Don’t miss this uproarious musical comedy.
An Eight O'Clock Theatre Production.
