Dirty Rotten Scoundrels ready for the West End

The classic eighties film Dirty Rotten Scoundrels originally starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, has been adapted as a musical for the London stage for the first time.

It tells the tale of two crooks who compete to swindle thousands of pounds out of a rich heiress. Of course, things don't pan out as they'd planned.

It's a star-studded cast but Robert Lindsay, who plays Michael Caine's character, admits he's never seen the film, though he did once have breakfast with Steve Martin.

You can find out more about the production on the show's website.
