Based on the 1988 film directed by Frank Oz and starring Sir Michael Caine and Steve Martin, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will play in Manchester, making its UK debut at the Opera House in February, before opening in the West End. This premiere will star Olivier, Tony and BAFTA winner Robert Lindsay, the comedian Rufus Hound (pictured) and Singin’ In The Rain’s Katherine Kingsley, with more cast members to be announced.
