‘A Gentleman’s Guide To Love and Murder’ plays at the THC in OP

The Tony® Award winner for Best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder”, will play Thrasher-Horne Center, in its First National Tour.  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.

The most celebrated musical of the 2013-14 Broadway season, Gentleman’s Guide received ten 2014 Tony® Award nominations, eventually 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.  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 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!”
