VIDEO: Inside Playhouse on the Square's A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER

Playhouse on the Square presents the regional premier of the 2014 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical.

Based on the novel Israel Rank by Roy Horniman. GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER tells the story of Monty Navarro, the black sheep of the D'Ysquith family. When he finds out he is ninth in line to inherit a dukedom, he decides to eliminate the other eight heirs standing 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!

Making their debuts on the Playhouse on the Square stage are guest artists, Ryne Nardecchia and Adam Cates. Nardecchia joins Playhouse fresh off the A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER national tour. While Cates will direct and choreograph after mounting the first national tour as associate choreographer.

Joining Nardecchia onstage as Miss Marietta Shingle, is Lorraine Cotten, last seen in Playhouse on the Square's production of MEMPHIS. Resident Company Member, Brooke Papritz (HEATHERS, FUN HOME) plays Monty's mistress, Sibella Howard. While Resident Company Member Michael Gravois (LAUGHTER on the 23rd FLOOR, PERFECT ARRANGEMENT) portrays the entire D'Ysquith family.
