Due to popular demand and wide-spread critical acclaim, producer George Youakim from James Anthony Productions today announced that the season of the devilishly cheeky, fun-filled Broadway musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels has been extended to December 8 at Sydney’s Theatre Royal.
New performances go on sale on Friday. Sydney audiences are rolling in the aisles to what the Sydney Morning Herald has labelled “the best new musical to hit Sydney this century.”
Leading the exemplary cast are Tony Sheldon as Lawrence Jameson and Matt Hetherington as Freddy Benson, the two rival conmen on the French Riviera. Christine Colgate, the naive American heiress targeted by Lawrence and Freddy, is played by Amy Lehpamer, while John Wood plays Lawrence’s associate Andre Thibault. Two of the women conned by the pair, Muriel Eubanks and Jolene Oakes, are played by musical theatre favourites Anne Wood and Katrina Retallick.
Directed by Roger Hodgman, musically directed by Guy Simpson and choreographed by Dana Jolly, with sets by Michael Hankin, costumes by Teresa Negroponte and lighting by Nicholas Rayment, this laugh-a-minute romp is fast becoming the surprise hit musical of the year!
