This 2014 Tony-winner for Best Musical is still fresh and intoxicating years later. Crisp direction, superb musicianship, and pitch-perfect performances ensure an engrossing evening of delightful English Music-Hall operetta mixed with the fierce satire of a modern theatre piece. A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER earns its stripes, and if you are presented with the opportunity to experience the zaniness and delight it has to offer, that is an opportunity not to be missed.
