Tag Archives: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Sometimes all you want out of an evening of theater is not Lear or Seurat. But just fun. Escapist laughter-laden fun. Dovetailing with the re-opening of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, the daffy musical Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a welcome distraction from headlines and deadlines.
It’s a genuine compliment when a critic doesn’t particularly look forward to a show based on past productions and recordings – and then reassesses his antipathy based on seeing a fresh new production. So it’s saying something that Broward Stage Door’s Dity Rotten Scoundrels is a pleasing romp.
