Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

Music & Lyrics by David Yazbek
Book by Jeffrey Lane Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at Arvada Center

Based on the popular 1988 film starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, this Tony Award winning musical comedy centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. The first is a suave and sophisticated fellow, who makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. The other is a small-time crook who modestly swindles women by arousing their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. When the two attempt to join forces the plan fails miserably so they come to an agreement to pull off one great scam where the winner stays and the other leaves town forever. A madcap battle of the cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and trying to guess the cons’ next move to the end!
