2014 Tony Winner
This delightful show will lift the hearts of all those who've been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form: musicals that match streams of memorable melody with fizzily witty turns of phrase.
Ben Brantley, The New York TimesBuy Tickets
The darling of the 2014 Tony Awards, A Gentleman's Guide earned an eye-watering 10 nominations and two high profile wins, Best Musical and Book. Richly deserved, for this unabashed celebration of theater is a wonderful black comedy whose acerbic wit and clever lyrical flourishes have rendered it a storming commercial and critical success. Ben Brantley of the New York Times called the score among, 'The most accomplished heard on Broadway in the last dozen years or so'.
Charting the rise and fall of the social climbing Monty Navarro (Bryce Pinkham) and his bizarre quest to off all that stand between him and the coveted D'Ysquith Earldom, this Edwardian caper is based on the classic Ealing studios hit Kind Hearts and Coronets, which starred Alec Guinness in the multi-character role now inhabited marvellously by scene stealing Tony nominee Jefferson Mays.
Add to this web of murder and deceit the extra complication of love rivals, the passionate and vain Sibella and the innocent and pure Phoebe, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder is an irreverent and hilarious new musical that is sure to make a wonderful evening out!
When the low born Monty Navarro finds out that he's 8th in line for an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the second Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn't the only thing Monty's mind...
Before taking the Great White Way by storm, A Gentleman's Guide came from far more humble beginnings, premiering in November 2012 in Hardford, Connecticut.
