A perfect blend of farce, romance, and treachery, A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER won the Tony for Best Musical in 2014, and we're proud to host the Bay Area professional premiere! When a commoner finds he's eighth in line for an Earldom, he begins fiendishly plotting to move to the top of the heap. With a sparkling score and a crack ensemble cast, this GUIDE is part comedy of manners and part music hall romp-you'll be dying of laughter.

The cast of A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER will feature Kevin Singer* ("Monty"), Melissa WolfKlain* ("Phoebe"), Christine Capsuto-Shulman* ("Sibella"), Matt Hammons* ("The D'Ysquith Family"), Teressa Foss* ("Miss Shingle"/Ensemble), Lee Ann Payne* ("Lady Eugenia"/Ensemble), Noel Anthony Escobar* (Ensemble), Nick Nakashima* (Ensemble), Sean Fenton* (Ensemble), Amanda Johnson* ("Miss Barley"/Ensemble), Nicole Helfer (Ensemble) and Hayley Lovgren (Ensemble).

In addition to Carollo, Thomas and Lazo, the creative team will include Mark Mendelson (Scenic Designer), Claudio Silva Restrepo (Lighting Designer), Rebecca Valentino (Costume Designer), Alicia Lerner* (Stage Manager) and Ashley Garlick* (Assistant Stage Manager).
