Experience Steven Lutvak’s and Robert Freedman’s Tony Award-winning operetta this summer at SOPAC!
Set in London in 1907, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder focuses on Monty Navarro, a penniless clerk. After the death of his mother, Monty discovers he is ninth in line to inherit the earldom of Highhurst, a grand estate controlled by the wealthy D’Ysquith banking family. After the imperious ruling Lord dismisses Monty’s claim of being a relative, the eight D’Ysquiths inheritors (all played by a single actor, adding to the merriment) begin dying in natural and unnatural ways. Meanwhile, Monty is trying to woo money-minded Sibella Hallward—until he finds himself drawn to young Phoebe D’Ysquith. How will all these convoluted storylines come together?
Famed New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood praised A Gentleman’s Guide upon its premier in 2014, saying:
“Despite the high body count, this delightful show will lift the hearts of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form: musicals that match streams of memorable melody with fizzily witty turns of phrase. Bloodlust hasn’t sung so sweetly, or provided so much theatrical fun, since Sweeney Todd first wielded his razor with gusto many a long year ago.”
