Nothing is too wonderful to be true...
Based on the 1988 film classic starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a sidesplitting modern musical comedy gem about a pair of con men and the gorgeous female target with whom they both come to reluctantly fall in love. What follows is a zany caper, a battle of wits and wills between an old pro and a scrappy newcomer featuring a snazzy and hilarious score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty). This delightfully twisted tour of the French Riviera ultimately proves itself to be as funny as it is dementedly heartwarming.
