Latest Review: "Amazing! Superb story plot! I was sat at the row second to back and before the show started I was..."

The musical adaptation of the classic movie Dirty Rotten Scoundrels appears on the stage of the Savoy Theatre after wowing audiences on Broadway.  But picking up theatre tickets won’t just treat you to a story that wowed audiences in the 1980s, it will also provide the opportunity to see the performances of Robert Lindsay, Alex Gaumond and Katherine Kingsley, taking on the roles that were previously taken by Michael Caine, Steve Martin and Glenne Headley.

The production premiered in California in 2004 before transferring to Broadway in 2005 for a run that lasted nearly two years. It has also been seen on stages around the world.

But then it has a memorable plot, which focuses on conmen by the names of Lawrence Jameson and Freddy Benson. Lawrence, hailing from Britain, finds himself in the French Riviera where he meets Freddy and it is clear that whilst they are both conmen they have a very different take on the discipline. They start by double crossing one another regularly but eventually they take on one of the biggest cons of their careers, together, as they target the affection of Christine Colgate, a soap heiress who has less money than they think.

Robert Lindsay is perhaps best known to modern audiences for playing the role of Ben Harper in the popular television sitcom My Family, though his career has included an array of other programmes and movies, in addition to stage productions. He has played Tony Blair on two occasions, in The Trial Of Tony Blair and A Very Social Secretary, played himself in Extras and appeared in the well known movie Wimbledon. For the stage he has appeared in The Lion In Winter at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, Onassis at the Novello Theatre, Oliver at the London Palladium and The Entertainer at the Old Vic Theatre. Meanwhile, his performance in Me And My Girl at the Adelphi Theatre in the 1980s earned him a Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Musical.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels runs at the Savoy Theatre in London’s West End.
