Dirty Rotten Scoundrels to debut on West End
Date Posted: 12/11/13
The West End will soon be hit by Dirty Rotten Scoundrels - a new musical theatre production starring Olivier-winning actor Robert Lindsay.
The My Family star will be joined in the production by comedian Rufus Hound and West End veteran Katherine Kingsley. It will premiere at the Savoy theatre from March 10th.
A stage adaption of the hit 1988 Michael Caine/Steve Martin film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will delight those who enjoy a lighthearted musical.
Speaking about the production, Lindsay commented that “there is a real sense of classic English humour in this production”.
The stage adaptation premiered on Broadway in 2005 and proved to be a smash hit, receiving 11 Tony Award nominations.
Jerry Mitchell, director of the UK version, commented: "With a sensational score and the incredible comic gift of Robert Lindsay, Rufus Hound and Katherine Kingsley, it will be an honour to bring this fabulous story to the West End."
People going on London theatre breaks may well want to incorporate Dirty Rotten Scoundrels into their trip to see what all the fuss is about.
