Dirty Rotten Scoundrels March 2014

A small group of us had a thoroughly enjoyable visit to a matinee performance of this comedy musical at the Savoy Theatre.  The show is set on the French Riviera and is based on a 1988 movie starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin.  Wonderful performances by all the leading characters, including Robert Lindsay as Lawrence Jameson and Rufus Hound as Freddy Benson playing two conmen kept us highly entertained.  The acting, singing and dancing was extremely professional.  Both actors seemed to be thoroughly enjoying their roles and clearly had difficulties containing themselves on occasions as some of the sketches became every more funny.  The audience greeted both the comic and musical elements of the show with much laughter and applause throughout.  Thank you to Daphne and Gillian for arranging this highly pleasurable escapist afternoon.
