Jonathan Larson died tragically young, aged just 35. A writer who touched so many lives, it was an inspired idea that saw Katy Lipson and Guy James mark the twentieth anniversary of his passing by staging a concert to remember the man and his work.

DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS – Touring

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels was last year’s must-see musical in the West End, with audiences and critics lapping up the jokes and raving about Robert Lindsay’s performance. Predictably I didn’t see it, but when it closed I felt pretty sure it would be out on tour before too long so I made a point to catch it at The Mayflower and see what all the fuss was about.

The South of France is the setting for this West End musical that’s lighting up the North as it arrives at the Playhouse for a week.

Give Them What They Want, is the message of the first big number of this hit show, fresh from London’s West End. And while in the world of con artists ‘they’ are the victims, the song applies equally to us punters. We go to a musical hoping for a great script, memorable performances and, of course, fabulous songs, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels has all of these in spades.
