Photo Flash: Drew Carey Visits 'GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE' at 5th Avenue Theatre


Drew Carey visited the company of A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder on Friday evening at The 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle. The first national tour will be playing in Seattle through July 31, 2016. Scroll down for a photo!

The Tony Award winner for Best Musical launched its First National Tour in September 2015. Gentleman's Guide tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession, by any means necessary. All the while, he's got 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.

Leading the cast are Kevin Massey (Gentleman's Guide, Memphis) as Monty Navarro and John Rapson (LES MISERABLES) as the eight members of the D'Ysquith family. Kristen Beth Williams (Pippin, Nice Work...) plays Sibella Hallward and Adrienne Eller plays Phoebe D'Ysquith. Seattle's own Mary VanArsdel plays Miss Shingle.

Rounding out the cast is Lesley McKinnell (Miss Barley), Kristen Mengelkoch (Lady Eugenia), Christopher Behmke (Magistrate), Sarah Ellis (Swing/Dance Captain), Matt Leisy (Tom Copley), Megan Loomis (Tour Guide), Dani Marcus (Swing), David Scott Purdy (Swing), Chuck Ragsdale (Swing) and Ben Roseberry (Chief Inspector Pinckney)

The design team includes Alexander Dodge (Scenic Design), Linda Cho (Costume Design), Philip S. Rosenberg (Lighting Design), Dan Moses Schreier (Sound Design), Aaron Rhyne(Projections Design), Brian Strumwasser (Make-Up Design) and Charles LaPointe (Wig Design). Orchestrations are by Jonathan Tunick and Vocal Arrangements are by Dianne AdamsMcDowell and Steven Lutvak. Paul Staroba serves as Music Supervisor.

Gentleman's Guide features a book and lyrics by Robert L. Freedman and music and lyrics by Steven Lutvak. Direction is by Darko Tresnjak, with choreography by Peggy Hickey. Gentleman's Guide opened at Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre to overwhelming critical acclaim in November 2013.
