Take a good, conventional musical comedy, add a liberal serving of naughty bits, and that’s Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
The greatest joy of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels for me is seeing something new – a relatively successful American musical, which played a respectable 626 Broadway performances between 2004 and 2006, without attracting a professional production here. While Melbourne got a one-week Production Company staging, it’s taken an enterprising musical society to give Sydney its first taste.
