As previously announced, Scott will appear in John Guare's Landscape of the Body for Off-Broadway's Signature Theatre Company in spring 2006. The Dirty Rotten producers confirmed Dec. 5 she will take a leave from the Imperial Theatre starting Feb. 19, 2006. She is expected to return June 20 and continue into fall 2006.

Scott's turn in Signature's Landscape of the Body, opposite Lili Taylor, will be seen March 28-May 21, 2006.

In addition to the Tony Award nominations, Scott received Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Award nomination for her role in the Dirty Rotten Jeffrey Lane-David Yazbek musical.

Upon re-signing her contract, the multi-tasking Scott said, "I'm so glad we worked out schedules and that I can continue with the show, and do the John Guare play with Lili Taylor — a project I adore."

As previously announced, two-time Tony Award-winner, Jonathan Pryce, succeeds John Lithgow as one of the two title characters on Jan. 17, 2006.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels won the 2005 Drama League Award as Best Musical, and was nominated for 11 Tony Awards.

The production features John Lithgow, Norbert Leo Butz, Joanna Gleason, Gregory Jbara and Sara Gettelfinger, and is directed by two-time Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien and choreographed by Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell.
