Winner of the Tony Award® for Best Musical and acclaimed by audiences and critics as a "knock-’em-dead, uproarious hit," A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is an outrageous romp filled with unforgettable music and non-stop laughs!

In 1907 London England, penniless clerk Monty Navarro is delighted to learn that he’s eighth in line for an earldom in the esteemed D’Ysquith family. Figuring the odds of outliving his predecessors are slight, he sets off down a sinister path knocking off his relatives one by one with his sights set on the family title and fortune. 

All the while, this loveable cad has 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 being caught! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to the inheritance … and be done in time for tea. 

Don't miss this hilarious whodunit adored by murder mystery and musical theatre lovers alike.

Recommended for ages 10 and up.
