Foote in the Door productions presents Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - The Musical from November 2 to 10 at the Theatre, La Cite Francophone, 8627 91 St
Music and Lyrics by David Yazbek and a book by Jeffrey Lane
Foote in the Door Productions is proud to open their 5th season with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM film and nominated for eleven Tony Awards. Take a trip with us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity. This hysterical comedy is sophisticated and suave with a good dash of mischief, and features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty, Band's Visit).
Lawrence Jameson 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 meeting in the lobby of an opulent hotel, 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
