Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Book by Jeffrey Land
Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek
Based on the 1988 film written by Dale Launer and Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning
Directed by Chad Gifford
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels takes you to the French Riviera where two very funny con men try to out-con each other. Suave and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson charms wealthy women out of their money versus small-time crook Freddy Benson who plays on people's sympathies with his sob stories. When it becomes apparent that the Riviera isn't big enough for the both of them, they make a winner-take-all wager over the fortunes of the naive American soap heiress. The first one to "clean her out" can make the other clear out and keep the Riviera and its unsuspecting tourists to himself! This hysterical musical comedy will have you laughing out of your seat!
