Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Music and lyrics by David Yazbek, book by Jeffrey Lane
Based on the 1988 movie. Lawrence Jameson works the French Riviera and makes his living by talking rich women out of their money. Freddy Benson is also a swindler preying on sympathetic women with stories about his grandmother’s failing health. The two men meet on a train and attempt to work together only to realize there is only room for one of them to operate in such a small town, so they make a bet to see who can extract $50,000 from a young heiress. The loser has to leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues.
