With music and lyrics by David Yazbek and a book by Jeffrey Lane, "DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS" follows the misadventures of two con-artists Freddy Benson and Lawrence Jameson.  

Freddy is just one more hardscrabble huckster trying to make a (dis)honest living – that is, until he meets Lawrence, a high-society swindler whose polish and connections have landed him a glamorous gig on the French Riviera.  

When Lawrence invites Freddy to team up, it seems like the two have finally found the perfect con – until they realize that their egos are the only thing more massive than their earnings.  

Friction turns to an outright feud when the perfect target arrives in town – Christine, an heiress who is just as beautiful as she is gullible.  

Who will be the first to steal Christine's heart and, more importantly, her wallet?  

Grab a sunhat and a cold drink for "DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS" - a musical that will keep you grinning and guessing from start to finish.
