About the show

Recipient of the Tony Award for Best Musical, about a charming scoundrel with noble aspirations and the eight relatives who stand in his way (all played by the same person).

... Read more

"Gentleman's Guide" tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, an heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by—you guessed it—eliminating the eight pesky relatives who stand in his way (each played by Tony winner Jefferson Mays in what The New York Times calls “the year’s greatest musical theater performance"). All the while, Monty 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 landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance… and be done in time for tea.

The New York Times

"A true tour de force that is hardly likely to be bettered on Broadway this season...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." Full Review

Time Out New York

"Since it turns on the niceties of aristocratic succession, why not start the coronation early: A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is the new undisputed king of musical comedy. Filled with lunatic sightgags and the wittiest, loveliest show tunes in years, there’s not a weak link in the lively cast." Full Review

The Associated Press

"There are different ways to make it to the top. You could start at the bottom and work hard, or breeze into the family business — or you could try murdering your way to success, as in the dazzlingly funny new musical comedy "A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder." Full Review

Variety

"Witty and adorably wicked...the show’s heart is in the old music halls, where the jokes were vulgar, the songs were upbeat, the lyrics were in bad taste, and the thespians often got away with…well, murder." Full Review

Entertainment Weekly

Overkill has seldom been more enjoyable than in A Gentleman's Guide, a thoroughly delightful and uproarious Broadway musical about an Edwardian serial killer who could be a well-heeled cousin of Sweeney Todd by way of P.G. Wodehouse’s Jeeves." Full Review

Bob's Theater Blog

"I am happy to report that, although it has been running for close to two years, the production is as lively and polished as it was in 2013...The sets, projections and costumes continue to delight. The music seemed a little more monotonous this time and the lyrics were occasionally lost by less than ideal enunciation, but the show is still a wonderful treat." Full Review

Stu on Broadway

"The musical is smart, funny, and entertaining. There are many aspects of the production to praise with primary honors going to the tour de force performance of actor Jefferson Mays...'A Gentlemen’s Guide' is smaller in scale, but nonetheless wholly satisfying... Director Darko Tresnjak assuredly guides the musical through its paces." Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter

"The show embraces a full spectrum of moth-eaten British comic archetypes, not least of them the frightfully plummy Adelbert, togged out in upper-crust hunting gear, his big number backed by the singing portraits of deceased forebears. Also unmistakably English is the musical’s judicious smattering of bawdy humor and double entendres." Full Review

USA Today

"Jefferson Mays shape-shifting and comedic gifts are on glorious display in A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder." Full Review

CitiTour

"Darko Tresnjak’s clever, gorgeously costumed production…Lutvak has proven himself a first-rate songwriter in the world of cabaret, but his work here is less memorable than I’d hoped. There are a couple of very fine comic numbers, but I expected some more beautiful ballads…Still, if you want two-and-half-hours of mayhem and merriment, guide yourself over to the Walter Kerr Theatre. The only danger you’ll be in for is having too good a time.' Full Review

WNBC

"Theatergoers get two leading men for the price of one with “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder,” a deliciously dark comic musical in which vicious slayings are played for laughs in elegant Edwardian England." Full Review

StageZine

"A most delightful and charming evening...Director Darko Tresnjak has imbued the piece with lots of clever and delightful sight gags and they work perfectly. Whether it is the fault of the authors or the director, the two acts are uneven. A lot happens in Act I and not enough in Act II...Nonetheless, it is a smart musical and can be enjoyed thoroughly. 'A Gentlemen’s Guide' ranks as one of the highlights of the fall season." Full Review

New York Magazine / Vulture

"The authors of the musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder are aiming for droll comedy; especially in the knock-’em-dead performance of Jefferson Mays as various undearly departeds, they usually hit their mark." Full Review

The Huffington Post

"Everything about the show is so likable. I left Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder having had a perfectly pleasant time with a pair of talented new theatre-writers, in the company of a delightful cast.But rousing? No." Full Review

Bloomberg

"A stylish music-hall mystery in which we know whodunit from beginning to end, “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” has lively songs, a congenial villain and a physically and morally flexible mistress" Full Review

New York Daily News

"An unforgiving theater fact: A musical can have everything else going for it, but without a great score it’s got a hole in its heart. Case in point — the fun but flawed “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder.” Full Review

New York Theater

"The musical’s influences would lead one to expect a quick-witted comedy set in Edwardian England, and A Gentleman’s Guide delivers on this expectation. Jefferson Mays’ track record as a master of multiple characters promises some jolly acting, and A Gentleman’s Guide delivers on that promise. The musical is well-designed, well-acted, and well enough plotted (with some twists that are well-crafted.) Yet for all its cleverness and wicked charm, this is an entertainment I could easily have skip... Full Review

New York Post

"The big hook of the musical “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder” is Jefferson Mays. He doesn’t just give a performance — he gives eight of them, impersonating members of the same British family. And yet none of them really register." Full Review

AM New York

"With a thin premise, a sluggish book and unmemorable songs that vaguely resemble work by Gilbert & Sullivan and Noel Coward, the show makes for a tiresome 21/2 hours." Full Review
