Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based on the popular 1988 MGM film, takes us to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity.
It would be a CRIME to miss this runaway hit musical!
Take a trip to the French Riviera, as two conmen battle for the heart—and the wallet—of an American heiress, in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, based off the critically-acclaimed 1988 MGM film. Arizona Broadway Theatre’s (ABT) production of this musical extravaganza is based on a book by Jeffrey Lane and will run until June 4.
Set in present times, ABT’s production is directed by Clayton Phillips, who has led some of ABT’s most popular productions including La Cage Aux Folles, Funny Girl and Mamma Mia! Sophisticated and suave with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score by David Yazbek (The Full Monty) Michael Ursua provides the musical direction for this production, with ABT credits that include 21 | 22 Season productions Happy Days and Chicago, as well as working alongside Clayton for La Cage Aux Folles.
The over-the-top characters are played by a cast of both familiar and new faces. Recently seen in ABT’s productions of Monty Python’s SPAMalot and MAME, Steve McCoy returns to the mainstage as Lawrence Jamieson, sharing a leading role with Nathan David Smith who is making his ABT debut from New York and playing Freddy Benson. The two conmen are joined by Kelsey Seaman, also debuting at ABT from New York, who plays the naive “American Soap Queen” Christine Colgate.
As a dinner theatre, ABT provides a unique experience with the combination of dining and live entertainment. Prepare for a culinary journey and experience Chef David Young’s special menu crafted specifically for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, made from fresh ingredients of the highest quality with a wide range of options for all palettes and diets. Dinner & Show tickets include a choice between a soup and a salad, plus an entrée. The Mediterranean and French-inspired menu includes Moutarde Le Toupet Chicken Breast, a Grilled Salmon Tapenade Bowl and Halloumi Vegetable Skewers.
