Florida Studio Theatre Announces Full Cast For A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER

Florida Studio Theatre (FST) opens its 45th Winter Mainstage Season with the four-time Tony Award-winning musical, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. Called "A true tour de force" by The New York Times, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder follows Monty Navarro, a lowly born Englishman who suddenly discovers he is eighth in succession to become the Earl of Highurst, and is determined to gain the title...by any means necessary. This critically-acclaimed, knock 'em dead musical, with Book and Lyrics by Robert L. Freedman and Music and Lyrics by Steve Lutvak, will run starting November 7 in FST's Gompertz Theatre.

"It's a wonderful, funky opening to our Winter Season," said FST's Producing Artistic Director, Richard Hopkins. "Gentleman's Guide is tight, smart, funny, and the perfect musical comedy for FST's intimate Gompertz Theatre." This Broadway hit was the most nominated play of the 2014 season and is filled with unforgettable music, nonstop comedy, and a scene-stealing role for one actor who plays all of the doomed D'Ysquith heirs. As Monty tries to finish off his eight relatives, he must also juggle a fiancée, mistress, and the constant threat of being caught.

The 10 person cast includes Jimmy Nicholas as Monty Navarro, Richard Henry as the D'Ysquith Family, along with Sarah Ellis Alexandra Zorn, Mimi Bessette, Chrissy Albanese, Taylor Galvin, James LaRosa, David Purdy, and Levin Valayil.

Bringing this Winter Mainstage opener to life is the same creative team that brought FST audiences Million Dollar Quartet and Once: FST Associate Artist Jason Cannon (Director) and Darren Server (Musical Director).

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder opens FST's 45th MainStage season, and is part of a four-show subscription package. Also included in the Mainstage subscription package is the regional premiere of Straight White Men, a comedic and poignant father-son drama by Obie Award-winning playwright Young Jean Lee, the Tony and Olivier Award-winning play, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, and the World Premiere of Mark St. Germain's new murder mystery Wednesday's Child. Subscriptions for all four Winter Mainstage shows can be purchased for as little as $69 at (941) 366-9000 or floridastudiotheatre.org.
