Broadway Las Vegas
A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder is bringing mayhem to Las Vegas. It is a witty dark comedy that follows the sinister machinations of dashing Monty Navarro as he pursues an aristocratic inheritance by any means possible. If you love lyrical wordplay, this Tony Award-winning tour de force will be just the trick. It plays in Reynolds Hall from Tuesday, March 8 to Sunday, March 13, 2016.
In grand tradition, the musical features many zany characters – beyond anti-hero Navarro as played by Jeff Kready – such as Lord Adalbert D’Ysquith, Lady Hyacinth D’Ysquith, Phoebe D’Ysquith, Reverend Lord Ezekial D’Ysquith and Sibella Hallward. Astoundingly, the entire D’Ysquith family is portrayed by a single actor, the amazingly versatile Jefferson Mays.
Based on a 1907 novel, Israel Rank: The Autobiography of a Criminal, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder ‘killed’ on Broadway. The work raked in accolades, including four 2014 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Direction of a Musical and Best Costume Design. It also won a handsome sum of twelve Drama Desk Awards, Outer Critics Circle Awards and Drama League Awards. It was a hit with critics and fans alike.
