Oklahoma Premiere Of A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER Opens Tonight
Celebrity Attractions is delighted to announce the 2014 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER makes its Oklahoma debut at the Tulsa Performing Arts Center for eight performances only January 23-28. Tickets are on sale now.
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.
One of Broadway's most celebrated musicals, GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE received ten 2014 Tony Award nominations, winning four awards: Best Musical, Direction of a Musical, Book of a Musical, and Best Costume Design. In addition, it won the Best Musical prizes from the Drama League, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle, and received a 2015 Grammy Award nomination for Best Musical Show Album.
A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER features a book and lyrics by Robert L. Freedman and music and lyrics by Steven Lutvak. The creative team for this production includes direction and choreography by Peggy Hickey (Anastasia), based on Broadway's original Tony Award-winning direction by Darko Tresnjak (Anastasia) and her own original choreography. The design and production team is comprised of two-time Tony Award nominee Alexander Dodge, scenic design (Anastasia, The Hunchback of Notre Dame); Tony Award-winning Linda Cho, costume design (Anastasia); Adam Cates, Associate Director and Choreographer (Anastasia); Philip S. Rosenberg, lighting design (The Elephant Man, It's Only a Play); four-time Tony Award-nominated Dan Moses Schreier, sound Design (Into the Woods, American Psycho); Aaron Rhyne, projection design; and Jason Styres, CSA, casting. Original orchestrations are by Jonathan Tunick and Vocal Arrangements are by Dianne Adams McDowell and Steven Lutvak. Paul Staroba serves as Music Supervisor.
Gentleman's Guide received critical acclaim on Broadway, where The New York Times raved "GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE will LIFT THE HEARTS of all those who've been pining for what sometimes seems A LOST ART FORM." The Hollywood Reporter enthused GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE "Restores our faith in musical comedy!" and Time Magazine said, "Just as I was about to give up on musicals, along comes A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER!"
