The Old Globe presents the world premiere of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, a new musical comedy with book by Robert L. Freedman, music by Steven Lutvak and lyrics by Freedman and Lutvak. Former Old Globe Co-Artistic Director Darko Tresnjak returns to the Globe to direct the production. A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder will run March 8 -- April 14, 2013 on the Donald and Darlene Shiley Stage in the Old Globe Theatre, part of the Globe's Conrad Prebys Theatre Center. Meet the cast and creative team below!

When Monty Navarro, the black sheep of the D'Ysquith family, finds out he is ninth in line to inherit a dukedom, he decides to eliminate the other eight heirs standing in his way -- all played by Tony Award winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife). Set in England's elegant Edwardian era, this witty music hall comedy was proclaimed "gorgeous, funny and melodious" by the Harford Courant. Named one of the top 10 "Hottest Tickets of the Year" by The New York Times, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder explores how low we'll go to make it to the top.

The Cast Includes: Ken Barnett (Monty Navarro), Heather Ayers (Miss Barley, Lady Eugenia), Rachel Izen (Miss Shingle), Chilina Kennedy (Phoebe D'Ysquith), Kevin Ligon (Tour Guide, Magistrate), Jefferson Mays (The D'Ysquiths), Lisa O'Hare (Sibella Hallward), KendAl Sparks (Farmer, Guard), Price Waldman (Barber, Detective) and Catherine Walker (Sibella's Maid, Phoebe's Maid).

The Creative Team Includes: Robert L. Freedman (Book and Lyrics), Steven Lutvak (Music, Lyrics and Vocal Arrangements), Darko Tresnjak (Director), Peggy Hickey (Choreography), Alexander Dodge (Scenic Design), Linda Cho (Costume Design), Philip S. Rosenberg (Lighting Design), Dan Moses Schreier (Sound Design), Aaron Rhyne (Projection Design), Charles LaPointe (Wig Design), Jonathan Tunick (Orchestrator), Mike Ruckles (Music Director), Dianne Adams McDowell and Steven Lutvak (Vocal Arrangements), Binder Casting (Casting) and Susie Cordon (Stage Manager).

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder is a co-production with Hartford Stage. Tickets can be purchased online at www.TheOldGlobe.org, by phone at (619) 23-GLOBE or by visiting the Box Office at 1363 Old Globe Way in Balboa Park.
