Getting away with murder can be so much fun. What better proof than the knock-’em-dead hit show that earned unanimous raves and won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical? Coming direct from New York, where a most gentlemanly NPR critic said he’d “never laughed so hard at a Broadway musical,” A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder is the uproarious story of Monty Navarro—a distant heir to a family fortune who plots to jump the line of succession by (you guessed it) eliminating the eight pesky relatives (all played by one fearless man) standing in his way. All the while, Monty juggles his mistress (who’s after more than just love), his fiancée (also his cousin, but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of prison. Of course, everything will be worth it if Monty can slay his way to the inheritance…and be done in time for tea. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder “restores our faith in musical comedy” (The Hollywood Reporter).
Puts the ‘fun’ back in ‘funeral.’
