Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek
Book by Jeffrey Lane
March 29 - April 21, 2019
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 film starring Steve Martin, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated and suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.
