A Gentlemans Guide to Love and Murder 2016 News and Updates
Get ready for a night of theater unlike anything you’ve experienced. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is so bloody fun, you’ll be knocked out of your seat by the pure unadulterated farce in this tour de fore comedy that’s giving The Book of Mormon
a run for its money. The memorable musical kicked off in November at the Walter Kerr Theater, and will be a Broadway mainstay through August 31.
A Gentleman’s Guide follows the murderous aristocratic sociopath Monty Navarro, played by Tony-winner Jefferson Mays, as he delights audience with sidesplitting musical gusto in “a performance that deserves to be immortalized in Broadway lore.” Mays sings and dances through eight alter egos, all the while spreading death and destruction on his path to securing the title of Earl of Highhurst so as not to lose the love of his life, the upwardly mobile Sibella Hallward—all he has to do is eradicate the eight familial heirs who stand in his way!
If you’re wondering how blood and guts can be fun and entertaining, think of Gentleman’s Guide akin to the same tongue-in-cheek style of the beloved Sweeney Todd musical (Johnny Depp plays title character in the hit movie version), or Alec Guinness in the British comedy “Kind Hearts and Coronets.” The “rich-voiced” ensemble cast foils an Edwardian-era English culture and performs the witty diction and clever lines that litter the script masterfully. Seize your Gentleman’s Guide tickets today—this production is a not-to-be-missed fiasco that has already been hailed the “new undisputed King of Musical Comedy”!
