Be transported to the French Riviera for a night of music, dancing, and high society high jinks as we follow con artists, Lawrence Jameson, suave and sophisticated and his rival Freddy Benson, the small-time crook. 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 both of them. So they make a bet: the first to swindle a young heiress, triumphs and the other must leave town. What follows are a series of schemes, masquerades and double-crosses in which nothing may ever be exactly what it seems.

It is based on the book by Jeffrey Lane. Music and lyrics are by David Yazbek. It is also based on the film “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels”. This comedy is written by Dale Launer, Stanley Shapiro & Paul Henning.
