Dirty Rotten Scoundrels


Judy and I went to Galveston to see Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at the 1894 Grand Opera House. The Strand area has a few more shops and restaurants open than the last time we were there, and it was good to see people walking around. We drove down the seawall, too, and the traffic was awful. There were still a lot of spring breakers on the Island, and that was also good news.

After dinner at the Original Mexican Cafe, we wen to the play. Lots of fun. The actors were attractive and all had strong voices, the jokes were funny, the dancing was snappy, and the sets were great. I've seen both movie versions, so I was familiar with the story, but I still enjoyed the working out of the capers. All in all, a fine way to spend a long spring evening.

The play version of DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS is great fun. There's something for everyone: comedy, music, dancing, and suspense. Glad you and Judy enjoy it as much as Diane and I did.

Spring? All we have is rain, cold, gloom, and fog. And I don't even live in London. Spring, yeah.

We'll pay for the nice spring when summer and hurricane season roll around.

Both movie versions? I'm only familiar with the Michael Caine/Steve Martin version.

The earlier one was called BEDTIME STORY, and it starred David Nevin and Marlon Brando.
