October 5-14 | Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the 1988 film with Michael Caine and Steve Martin, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards, it’s a bawdy, gaudy, guilty pleasure with a delightfully jazzy score. This uproarious musical is sophisticated and suave with a good dash of mischief.
At the center of the story are two con men. Lawrence is an older gentleman, seasoned, experienced, an expert at taking women’s money and leaving them poorer but smiling. Enter Freddy, a young American who’s looking to make a bigger score. Upon meeting, the two rogues attempt to work together, only to find that this little French town isn’t big enough for both of them. They agree on a settlement. The first one to extract $50,000 from a certain heiress wins, and the other must leave town.
