Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - 2005 - Broadway


Based on the film of the same name by Dale Launer, Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning

Based on the popular 1988 film, DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS is the musical story of two con men living on the French Riviera. 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. To settle the score, they agree on a competition: the first one to extract $50,000 from heiress Christine Colgate wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of wits ensues, that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end! Mature language and themes.


Running Time: Two hours and 40 minutes with one intermission

Imperial Theatre (Broadway)
