Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money.
Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grand mother’s failing health.
After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them.
They agree on a settlement : the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female heiress, Christine Colgate wins, and the other must leave town.
The battle of the cons is on, but who will reign victorious?
We are transported to the French Riviera for high jinks and hilarity.
Sophisticated, suave and a good dash of mischief, this hysterical musical features a delightfully jazzy score and was nominated for 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score.
