Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at The Regent Theatre

Ah, the theatre twice in as many weeks. I really am becoming cultured aren't I? But as mentioned in my last blog post, which was an East is East Review, I have visited The Regent Theatre in Stoke on Trent again. This time to see Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this one, but my friend had not stopped talking about it since I told them I'd swindled tickets to the press night. I was certainly intrigued to see if Dirty Rotten Scoundrels lived up to it's name as 'one of the funniest movies of all time' in the theatre production of it!


'
'Based on the classic comedy film starring Sir Michael Caine and Steve Martin, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will transport you to the French Riviera as two seasoned swindlers attempt to hoodwink a millionaire heiress. As the pair compete, they discover there is only room for one of them.''



So, what did I think? WELL, I've got to say - I've definitely come round to this musical thing now. The songs were just the right level of cheese and pizazz contrasting against some crude lyrics and rather scampish quips.

I loved the choreography of the dance numbers, alongside the stunning costume. I've decided that sequins sparkling in stage lighting is now one of my favourite things to look in awe at, ever. I was also shocked to discover that one of the leading ladies in the show was Carley Stenson playing Christine Colgate! You may recognise Carley as the actress formally known as Steph Cunningham from Hollyoaks back in the day. It's amazing how someone you're used to seeing on your TV screen can make a character come alive on a real, live stage show.

Other members of the Dirty Rotten Scoundrels cast included Carley Stenson,  Noel Sullivan and Mark Benton.

It's fairly difficult for something to make my physically 'laugh out loud' (unless it's one of my own jokes of course) and I don't know if it was the atmosphere of the audience, or the genuinely funny lines, but I found myself 'lol-ing' throughout.

There's a little twist at the end, which you kind of see coming, but with such a slapstick comedy musical it just kind of makes it even more enjoyable!

Overall, a brilliant way to spend a Tuesday evening and I now need to give myself a cheek massage to relieve the aches from smiling and laughing throughout.

You can catch Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the Regent Theatre in Stoke on Trent until Saturday 01st August 2015. Tickets for Dirty Rotten Scoundrels are on sale now and can be purchased at the Box Office, by calling 0844 871 7649 or by visiting www.atgtickets.com/stoke
