Tony-winning musical A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder has officially recouped its $7.5 million capitalization. The production, which opened on November 17, 2013, also holds the house records at the Walter Kerr Theatre for both the highest single-week gross ($1,062,740.60 over eight performances on the week ending December 28, 2014) and total cumulative gross, which now stands at $51,557,644.05.

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder tells the story of Monty Navarro, who has received the news that he is descended from a noble family and could become the next Earl of Highhurst. There are only eight issues standing in his way: the other heirs (all played by a single actor) who precede him in line for the title. What does Monty choose to do? Eliminate them, of course. It features a book and lyrics by Robert L. Freedman, and music and lyrics by Steven Lutvak. Darko Tresnjak directs, with choreography by Peggy Hickey.

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder stars Tony winner Jefferson Mays, Jeff Kready, Scarlett Strallen, Catherine Walker, and Carole Shelley, with Sandra DeNise, Joanna Glushak, Kristen Hahn, Greg Jackson, Eddie Korbich, Mark Ledbetter, Kevin Massey, Michael McCorry Rose, Jennifer Smith, Kathy Voytko, and Price Waldman.
