Based on the 1907 novel "Israel Rank: The Autobiography of a Criminal" by Roy Horniman and the source for the 1949 British film "Kind Hearts and Coronets" starring Alec Guinness, The New York Times said A Gentleman's Guide is "Among the most inspired and entertaining new musicals." This tour de force musical comedy tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, an heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by eliminating the eight pesky relatives who stand in his way. All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress (she's after more than just love), his fiancée (she's his cousin but who's keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance...and be done in time for tea.
