Two con men, a beautiful woman and the elite of the French Riviera collide in this sexy and irreverent farce.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the hugely popular MGM film starring Michael Caine & Steve Martin, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave and with a good dash of mischief, this hysterically funny comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering 11 Tony Awards on Broadway before its smash-hit West End run that starred Robert Lindsay & Rufus Hound.

Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson swindles women with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together only to find that 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 target, 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 ...
