A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE PROVES TO BE A FROTHY DELIGHT ON A COLD WINTER'S NIGHT The sleeper hit A GENTLEMANS GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER took the 2014 TONY AWARDS by storm when it won the coveted Best Musical prize. Not surprisingly, TONY voters were enthralled with the production, but also realized the potential this delightful chamber sized musical would have touring the country. With it's compact cast and impressive unit set, the provinces are to benefit in attending this charming bon bon that plays out as a cross between a bawdy English Music Hall comedy and a zany British farce. Originally produced by The Hartford Stage and The Old Globe, A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE's journey to Broadway paid off for all involved.

As Adam Feldman pointed out in his wonderful Time Out New York piece on Elaine Stritch, 'Everyone who ever met Elaine Stritch-hell, anyone who ever saw her perform-has a Stritch story.' I would like to add another category: everyone who ever saw her when someone else performed. I'll explain. In July 2004, Elton John was performing a symphonic concert at New York's Radio City Music Hall and I took my brother Rob. We had great seats, like tenth row center. Halfway through the beautiful set, Elton paused before 'Your Song' and dedicated it to 'One of the greatest theatrical personalities ever to grace the Broadway stage..' Suddenly, we look up about ten feet to our right, and Elaine Stritch is on her feet basking in the glow of a spotlight and Elton's uncharacteristically sincere (and long) introduction. 'Oh Rob, look at her. She's so cute, with those huge black glasses and that big hat. How sweet for her to have this little moment,' I said to my brother. Indeed, in those initial seconds of acknowledgment, Elaine seemed to light up from within and grow a full six inches, like a plant under a grow light on steroids.

The Met's chorus, under Donald Palumbo, was also in fine fettle.
