A Gentlemen’s Guide To Love And Murder
Tony-Award®-Winning Best Musical, Broadway’s A Gentleman’s Guide To Love & Murder tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune, who sets out to jump the line of succession by any means necessary. He’s got to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance…and be done in time for tea.
James Taylor Odom (who plays multiple characters with more than a dozen lightning-fast costume quick-changes) and the cast of the Gentleman’s Guide tour “make this musical about murder look merry not monstrous,” according to experts at Broadway.com.
As the show opens, a group dressed in mourning enter and advise “those of you of weaker constitution” to leave the theatre, as the show may prove disturbing.
In 1909, Lord Montague “Monty” D’Ysquith Navarro, Ninth Earl of Highhurst, is in jail. He says that he is writing his memoirs on the eve of his possible execution, and that his story could be called A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. And then the story takes the audience back in time to the beginning of the sordid story…
The curtain rises on Lord Asquith, Sr.’s funeral. Monty delivers a stirring eulogy, but the assembled mourners are irritated at the endless string of D’Ysquith memorials they are compelled to attend.
The show unfolds into a compelling and slapstick series of murders, suspicions, investigations, rumors, arrests, scandals, trial, more shenanigans – and a surprise ending. Don’t miss it!
