Dirty Rotten Scoundrels opens tonight Town Theatre Columbia, SC

Folks from all over the Nation are in Columbia due to the South Carolina Primary Election.  Interestingly, Town Theatre opens with Dirty Rotten Scoundrels Election eve.

While we are predominately a Political Blog, we thought it would be fun to take in a play the night before the election to decompress a bit.

Based on the popular 1988 film, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels focuses on two con men residing on the French Riviera. Meet Lawrence – a suave and sophisticated type who makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Then there is Freddy – a small-time crook, who more humbly swindles women by earning their compassion through his fictitious fables about his grandmother’s failing health.

Lawrence and Freddy soon discover that their small French town is only big enough for one of them. With neither swindler willing to depart without a fight, they agree to a contest. The first con man to extort $50,000 from Christine Colgate, a young female heiress, wins the right to keep hustling the residents of the Riviera. The loser must leave town.

Stealing the stage (pun intended) as our two thieves are Kyle Collins (Plaid Tidings, South Pacific) and Doug Gleason (White Christmas) as Lawrence and Freddy. Heiress Christine Colgate is played by Giulia Dalbec-Matthews (Damn Yankees, Gypsy). Other women falling prey to our conniving cons are Kathryn Seppamaki-Milliron (The Wizard of Oz) as the sophisticated Muriel Eubanks and Rene Little (in her Town debut) as Oklahoma’s oil heiress Jolene Oakes. Throw in the local chief of police portrayed by Charlie Goodrich (Annie, The King and I), and you are sure to be entertained by this clever battle of the cons.
