When Monty Navarro, a disinherited relative of the rich and powerful D'Ysquith clan, learns he's ninth in line to inherit the earldom, he sets out to secure his future by, er, process of elimination. Each of the eight heirs perilously standing in the way of Monty's fortune are played by Tony Award-winner Jefferson Mays, in one of the most tireless, whiplash-inducing performances ever attempted on the American stage. Based on the novel Israel Rank by Roy Horniman and set in England's elegant Edwardian era, this uproarious new musical comedy shows just how low we'll go to make it to the top.

The design team for A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder includes Alexander Dodge (Scenic Design), Linda Cho (Costume Design), Philip S. Rosenberg (Lighting Design),Dan Moses Schreier (Sound Design), Aaron Rhyne (Projections Design), and Charles LaPointe (Wig Design). Orchestrations are by Jonathan Tunick and Vocal Arrangements are byDianne Adams McDowell. Paul Staroba serves as Music Director.

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder is produced on Broadway by Joey Parnes and John Arthur Pinckard, in association with Hartford Stage and the Old Globe Theatre.
