The show is based on the Steve Martin and Michael Caine film from 1988, cleverly titled Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
This isn’t Shakespeare. It’s musical comedy; so we’re not going to spend a lot of time explaining plot intricacies or language nuances or such. You don’t need that. You might want to know that the plot revolves around two con men who are trying to seduce the same woman on a bet, so there’s some off color humor that might not be entirely appropriate for the younger set. But other than that one thing, you really just need to know it’s smart comedy.
And that’s enough.
Now get off the internet and go to the show!

They open in October with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, music and lyrics by David Yazbek and book by Jeffrey Lane, the 2005 musical adaptation of the 1988 film of the same name, which, unofficially, is in turn based on the 1964 David Niven film, Bedtime Story. Next up, in February, will be the classic romantic comedy The Philadelphia Story, written in 1939 by Philip Barry specifically for Katharine Hepburn and adapted by Barry into the 1940 film of the same name, again starring Ms. Hepburn. The season will close in May with their production of Arcadia, a 1993 play by Tom Stoppard, of which the reviewer for the Daily Telegraph in London once said, “I have never left a play more convinced that I had just witnessed a masterpiece”.
