“All the buzz about A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,
the clever new musical comedy pastiche that seems to be wending
its Edwardian way to Broadway, is redeemed by the ingenious
versatility and quick change athleticism of actor Jefferson Mays.”
Los Angeles Times
“A sumptuous and funny spectacle. The musical brings back to the
Globe the matchless visual splash of director Darko Tresnjak.”
U-T San Diego
“Ranks among the most inspired and entertaining
new musicals I've seen in years! I was smiling from ear to ear throughout.”
The New York Times
“When you have the hysterically funny Jefferson Mays playing the eight odious members of the entitled D'Ysquith family and Ken Barnett as the charming cad who croons some killer tunes, you have one wickedly delicious show.”
Former Old Globe Co-Artistic Director Darko Tresnjak returns to direct this World Premiere musical of merriment and murder. When Monty Navarro finds out he is ninth in line to inherit a dukedom, he decides to eliminate the other eight heirs standing in his way – all played by one incredible actor. This witty music hall comedy explores how low we'll go to make it to the top.
