Set in London in 1907, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder centers on Monty Navarro (Zachary Smith), a penniless clerk who learns that he is ninth in line to inherit the earldom of Highhurst, controlled by the wealthy D'Ysquith banking family. After the ruling Lord dismisses Monty's claim of being a relative, the eight D'Ysquiths ahead of young Mr. Navarro begin dying in natural and unnatural ways. A single actor (Brett Spahr) plays all the eccentric heirs, which adds to the merriment.
The Playhouse cast includes Sarah Florian, Austin Garner, Gina Gedler, Courtney Kayser, Ann Kramer, Derek Phelps, Hunter Quint, Sophie Rounds, Maggie Schmitt, Zachary Smith, and Brett Spahr. A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder is directed by John W. Viars with music direction by Brenton Brown and choreography by Alison Shafer.
The Playhouse is one of the oldest and largest community theatres in the US. Located at the 42nd Street exit of I-235, the theatre has presented a full season of shows since 1919 and also offers a wide variety of educational experiences including classes for ages 4 to adult, theatre trips to New York, and volunteer opportunities onstage and backstage.
