A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder

Where
300 South Main Street Greenville SC 29601 [ Map ]
Description
Getting away with murder can be so much fun… and there's no better proof than the knock-‘em-dead hit show that's earned unanimous raves and won the 2014 Tony Award® for BEST MUSICAL—A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder!

Coming direct from New York, where a most gentlemanly NPR critic said he'd "Never laughed so hard at a broadway musical," Gentleman's Guide tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by – you guessed it – eliminating the eight pesky relatives (all played by one fearless man) who stand in his way. 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 Hollywood Reporter raves, "Gentleman's Guide restores our faith in musical comedy" and The New York Times cheers, "It will lift the hearts of all those who've been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form."
