DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS EXPERIENCE:
Good guys finish last…meet the winners: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels one and all. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels started in San Diego in 2004 and successfully swept Broadway off its feet in 2005. Now the show has embarked on a North American national tour. Other countries that the Scoundrels will be playing in include Mexico, Norway, Spain, and Japan. Based on the 1988 Frank Oz film - which many consider to be one of the funniest films of all time - Dirty Rotten Scoundrels the musical will win your heart. (But keep your hand on your wallet).
Freddy Benson is a small-time American hustler who thinks he can strike it big on the French Riviera. Lawrence Jamieson, prince of con men, thinks not - it has been his territory for years. The “gentlemen” agree to simultaneously seduce and swindle a naïve American heiress, Christine Colgate. The looser has to leave town giving the show’s hit song its name: “The Only Game in Town”. The show is sure to please with its sharp, witty dialogue and songs.
During its 2005 run on Broadway Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was nominated for countless awards. Ultimately it won two of Broadways most prestigious: a Tony and a Drama Desk Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical. With lyrics and music by David Yazbek and a book by Jeffrey Lane the show is destined to become a classic American musical. Audiences are thrilled with this engaging, smart, and stimulating show.
