Dirty Rotten Scoundrels




A new musical based on the 1988 film of the same name.


Story:

Lawrence is a suave gentleman who cons rich ladies and Freddy a small time American thief who cons women into giving him money by making up stories about his sick grandmother. But the town is too small for two con men, so they agree that the first person to successfully steal $50,000 from Christine Colgate will get to stay in town, while the loser has to leave.
