Broadway's Tony-winning musical A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder has announced that it will launch a 44-week national tour in September. The tour will open at Chicago’s Bank of America Theatre where it will run for two weeks, from September 29-October 11.
"We’ve loved how much Broadway audiences have embraced Gentleman’s Guide, and enthusiasm for this show has reached far beyond New York," said producer Joey Parnes. "From the production’s world premiere in Hartford to its run in San Diego, it has already delighted crowds on both coasts. We’ve been dying to bring it to the rest of the country so they, too, can see what all the fuss – and laughter – is about."
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.
Gentleman's Guide opened at the Walter Kerr Theatre on November 17, 2013, with Tony-nominated performances by Bryce Pinkham, Jefferson Mays, and Lauren Worsham. The show features a Tony-winning book and lyrics by Robert L. Freedman, Tony-nominated music and lyrics by Steven Lutvak, and Tony-winning direction by Darko Tresnjak.
