Getting away with murder can be so much fun … and there’s no better proof than the knock-‘em-dead, uproarious, most-nominated show of the 2014 Broadway season, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. This Broadway hit tells the story of commoner Monty Navarro, who finds out he’s heir to the family fortune and an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family. Well, he would be the heir, if not for the eight relatives who come before him in the line of succession. Monty is a man with an abundance of ambition and a lack of moral fiber, so he tries to jump forward in the line of succession by eliminating all of the relatives who stand in his way. If that’s not enough, he also has to juggle a mistress and a fiancée. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is a murderous romp filled with unforgettable music, non-stop laughs and a scene-stealing role for one actor playing all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways.
