A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER Begins Rehearsals at The Gateway

The Tony Award-winning Best Musical A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder begins performances at The Gateway in Bellport on November 17 and will run through December 4.

A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder is the knock-'em-dead, uproarious hit and the most nominated show of the 2014 season. With ten Tony nominations and four wins, including Best Musical, Book, Direction, and Costumes; it also earned seven Drama Desk Awards (including Best Musical), four Outer Critics Circle Awards (including Best Musical), and one Drama League Award (Best Musical).

When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he's eighth in line for an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn't the only thing on Monty's mind...

After performing the roles on the National Tour, James Taylor Odem will play the role of the eight D'Ysquith heirs and Blake Price will portray Monty Navarro.
