London's West End has always been the place to head to for a fantastic night out, and this summer is set to be no different, with the likes of Matilda, The Book of Mormon and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory becoming firm favourites among show lovers.
One production to look out for is Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, a new musical production that is sure to get your toe tapping and your jazz hands out again. Starring three-time Olivier and Tony Award winner Robert Lindsay, of BBC comedy My Family fame, and comedian Rufus Hound, this is sure to keep you chuckling along. Lindsay has recently had a string of successful appearances on stage, having appeared in the likes of Becket, Oliver!, and Me and My Girl, while Hound was also recently seen in the National Theatre's One Man, Two Guvnors.
Joining them will also be Olivier-nominee Katherine Kingsley, who has not only strutted her stuff in Singin' in the Rain, but also appeared alongside David Walliams and Sheridan Smith in a new adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
The show is based on the classic comedy film starring Steve Martin and Sir Michael Caine, in which two con men try to pull the wool over the eyes of a millionaire heiress in the French Riviera. Originally working together, the two men soon realise that only one of them can be successful in the end. This new production is directed by choreographer Jerry Mitchell, who has managed to win a wide array of awards for his past shows, such as Hairspray, Legally Blonde and Kinky Boots.
Be sure to book into a London hotel during your stay, so you can also take advantage of the trendy bars that are located in the West End – a real chance to make a proper night of it!
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is running until March 7th 2015 at the Savoy Theatre.
