Based on the film of the same name, this thrilling production will be directed by Old Globe Artistic Director Jack O'Brien, who won back-to-back Tony Awards® for his direction of the Broadway hit Henry IV (2004) and Hairspray (2003).

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels features music and lyrics by The Full Monty composer/lyricist David Yazbek and a book by Jeffrey Lane. Broadway's leading choreographer Jerry Mitchell also joins the creative team as choreographer, having teamed up with O'Brien on their previous productions of The Full Monty, Imaginary Friends and Hairspray.

Following its run at The Old Globe, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will move to New York for a Broadway opening in March, 2005.

Based on the popular 1988 film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels centers on two con men living in the French Riviera. The first, a small-time crook named Freddy Benson, swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother's failing health. The other is suave, sophisticated con artist Lawrence Jameson, who also makes his living by talking rich ladies out of their money, but on a much grander scale. After meeting on a train, they unsuccessfully 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 wins, and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues, bringing out the best and worst in each man, along with a fun, unexpected twist that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!
