Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, a stage adaptation of the 1988 film, is an unashamedly silly musical that chucks political correctness out of the window. Just when you think it can’t get more ludicrous, the plot skids and slides into territories that are even more absurd and outrageous. But somehow it’s gloriously good. Set on the French [...]
