When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s ninth in line for an earldom in the lofty D’Ysquith family, he sets out to speed up the line of succession by using a great deal of charm… and a dash of murder. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind. The 2014 Tony winner for Best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder is a knock-‘em-dead uproarious romp filled with unforgettable music and madcap characters that is certain to have audiences dying with laughter.
