A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER is “THE NEW UNDISPUTED KING OF MUSICAL COMEDY!” (Time Out New York) Broadway’s knock-’em-dead hit tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to speed up the line of succession using a great deal of charm… and a dash of murder.
Tony® winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife, Gore Vidal’s The Best Man) gives “THE YEAR’S GREATEST MUSICAL-THEATER PERFORMANCE,” (The New York Times) playing all eight doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways. He stars alongside the debonair Bryce Pinkham (Ghost, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) as Broadway’s homicidal hunk, Monty Navarro. Don’t miss this drop-dead hilarious show that “RESTORES OUR FAITH IN MUSICAL COMEDY!” (The Hollywood Reporter).
