When Monty Navarro, the black sheep of the D'Ysquith family, 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 Tony Award winner Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife). Set in England's elegant Edwardian era, this witty music hall comedy was proclaimed "gorgeous, funny and melodious" by the Harford Courant. Named one of the top 10 "Hottest Tickets of the Year" by The New York Times, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder explores how low we'll go to make it to the top.
The Cast Includes: Ken Barnett (Monty Navarro), Heather Ayers (Miss Barley, Lady Eugenia), Rachel Izen (Miss Shingle), Chilina Kennedy (Phoebe D'Ysquith), Kevin Ligon (Tour Guide, Magistrate), Jefferson Mays (The D'Ysquiths), Lisa O'Hare (Sibella Hallward), KendAl Sparks (Farmer, Guard), Price Waldman (Barber, Detective) and Catherine Walker (Sibella's Maid, Phoebe's Maid).

Freedman (Book and Lyrics), Steven Lutvak (Music, Lyrics and Vocal Arrangements), Darko Tresnjak (Director), Peggy Hickey (Choreography), Alexander Dodge (Scenic Design), Linda Cho (Costume Design), Philip S.
