Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. Sophisticated, suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) and was nominated for a staggering eleven Tony Awards.
Lawrence Jamieson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After a brief meeting, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress, Christine Colgate, wins, and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
The cast includes some of Bangalore’s finest old and new singing, acting and dancing talent including Arvind Kasthuri, Rahael Thomas, Nitya Samuel, Shyju Varkey, Jenny George, Joewin Shamilana and Prem Koshy.
As always, our shows are accompanied by a live band, directed by Vivek Menzel, vibrant costumes and hand painted sets.
And our lively dances are choreographed and directed by Rhea Thomas, Alisha D’Souza and Lionel De Nazareth.
