Description

Book by Jeffrey Lane

Music & Lyrics by David Yazbek

Based on the film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Written by Dale Launer and Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning

Take a trip to the French Riviera with the riotously funny, Tony-nominated musical comedy, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Based on the popular 1988 film, this is the story of two very funny con men who try to out-con each other. They soon find out that the small French town the live in isn’t big enough to support two filthy, shameless, lying, cheating, dirty rotten scoundrels so they setup a challenge. The first person to successfully “clean out” a naive American heiress can stay in town and the loser must leave. The battle between them will take you on a hilarious adventure filled with twists, turns and great big laughs!
