The cast includes Tony-nominated actor Tom Hewitt as suave and sophisticated con man Lawrence Jameson. He's joined by D.B. Bonds, who plays Freddy Benson, the brash and vulgar swindler Lawrence takes under his wing.  Other principals include Laura Marie Duncan as Christine Colgate, Chicago stage veteran Hollis Resnik as Muriel Eubanks, Drew McVety as Andre Thibault and Jenifer Foote as Jolene Oakes.

The musical reunites David Yazbek (music and lyrics) with Tony Award winners Jack O'Brien (direction) and Jerry Mitchell (choreography), the Tony-nominated team behind The Full Monty. The raucous new musical comedy show features a book by Jeffrey Lane.  "Based on the popular 1988 MGM film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels centers on two con men living on the French Riviera – the suave and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson, who makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money; and a small-time crook named Freddy Benson, who, more humbly, swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health.  After meeting on a train, they unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn't big enough for the two of them. So they make a bet: the first one to swindle $50,000 from a young heiress, triumphs and the other must leave town. What follows are a series of schemes, masquerades and double-crosses in which nothing may ever be exactly what it seems," state press notes.
