WONDERFUL SURPRISE

Was just wandering the theater district with my wife and we decided this sounded like fun, so we grabbed two tickets and did not stop laughing and having fun for 2 hours. Entertaining and talented cast seemed to be having as much fun as the audience. Reminded me of a great carol burnet skit, set to music, that went on for two hours that felt like 10 minutes. Go.

LOVED THIS SHOW!

My sister and I saw a total of 3 plays during our visit to NYC (the other two we saw are Tony award winning plays)...A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder was our VERY favorite show! What a hilarious, clever, engaging and perfectly acted performance! The story was so fun! The actors were amazing...their singing, SO amazing...they obviously enjoy working together, as they played off of each others humor and made very funny moments even more entertaining. The orchestra was WONDERFUL. The set was simple and beautiful and surprising as it sprang to life during the performance... I can't say enough about it... The theater was beautiful and our seats, mezzanine right, were fabulous...I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. If there were any glitches during this first run preview on October 22nd, we certainly didn't detect them...the entire crew made the production an utter delight and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable night!! GO SEE THIS FABULOUS SHOW!!!!

Fresh,witty, superbly acted... Don't miss this delightful sumptuous production. Loved every hysterical second and can't wait for the event to come to England to show the English public this treat! Compliments for the best show in town!

FUNNIEST PLAY EVER

I'm sorry I couldn't stay in New York longer and see this play a second time. It was the funniest play I have ever seen. And it was even better than the movie Kind Heart and Coronets. Hats off to the D'Ysquiths. I hope you're still there when I travel to New York again.

SHEER BLISS

For my first visit to NYC for fourteen years and my nephew's first visit ever, I wanted a Brodway show with zing and panache. Kind Hearts and Coronets has long been one of my favourite films so A Gentleman's Guide sounded ideal. It exceeded my already high expectations and we both - my nephew is not really a theatregoer - hugely enjoyed the show. The theatre is a gem (even if the seating is somewhat cramped), the staff delightful and the performers - particularly Jefferson Mays - outstanding. I wept with laughter and consider myself fortunate to have come across this exceptionally entertaining show. I just hope that it transfers - with cast intact - to London where, if there's any justice, it would run forever.

What we thought

Fun witty MISCHIEVOUS

Splendidly mischievous and sparkles with fun!

As you walk into the extravagant Walter Kerr theatre there certainly is an air about it, double that with the even more lavish set of a stage within the stage, and the scene is set for a twist of theatrics!
