The John W. Engeman Theater announces the cast and creative team for A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER. Performances begin on Thursday, March 14 and run through Sunday, April 28, 2019.
Winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical, A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, an heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by-you guessed it-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.
