What's a little murder between relatives? A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder seeks to answer this question. A Gentleman's Guide tells the hilarious story of Monty Navarro and his quest to jump the line of succession and obtain his inheritance by any means necessary. All the while he has to balance his complicated love life, which means juggling both his fiancée and mistress, as well as stay one step ahead of the police so that he doesn't end up behind bars.
During its Broadway run, the critically-acclaimed musical, which was referred to as "providing the most theatrical fun since Sweeney Todd" by the New York Times, received ten 2014 Tony Award nominations, winning four awards: Best Musical, Best Director of a Musical, Best Book, and Best Costume Design. In addition, the production won seven Drama Desk Awards, including Best Musical and Best Lyrics; four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Musical and Beat Book; and the Drama League Award for Beat Musical.
Featuring a book and lyrics by Robert L. Freedman and music and lyrics by Steven Ludvak, the national tour production also includes direction by Peggy Hickey, which is both based off of the original direction by Darko Tresnjak and her own original choreography. The design and production team includes scenic design by Tony Award nominee Alexander Dodge; costume design by Tony award winner Linda Cho; lighting design by Philip S. Rosenberg; and sound design by Dan Moses Schreier.
