A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder

The best of British musical comedy is on display in this regional premiere which won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical.  Monty Navarro’s nursemaid knows a terrible secret: Monty’s mother was disinherited by the Dysquith family.  With disdain in his heart and greed in his eyes, Monty befriends the family before setting out to eliminate the eight pesky relatives between him and his inheritance while keeping his mistress (she’s after more than just love) and fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?) expertly at bay. This misadventured, murderous journey to the top will leave you breathless as Monty juggles love…and murder!
