Clever, Great acting, Hilarious, Original, Must see

See it if You would want to see a musical comedy about murder. Also, you must enjoy a small cast, where one actor is cast in SEVERAL main roles.

Don't see it if You want a hugely deep plot. It is about a man killing relatives to become rich, and there's a love triangle as well. More comedy than plot.

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."

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."

New York Magazine / Vulture
November 17th, 2013

"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."

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.”

"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."

The Hollywood Reporter
November 17th, 2013

"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."

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."

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."
