“WHY ARE ALL THE
A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder is the hilariously funny musical about Monty Navarro, a penniless clerk who discovers he is ninth in line to be Lord D’Ysquith, the Earl of Highhurst. But when the D’Ysquith family dismiss Monty’s claim, all eight family members in line to be Earl, surprisingly start dying from unnatural causes! This dastardly plot has been created to feature a single virtuoso performer as the D’Ysquith family; quadruple Helpmann Award winner Mitchell Butel stars in these eight roles.
Between murders, Monty is trying to woo Sibella Hallward until he finds himself drawn to the young Phoebe D’Ysquith. With looks like his, he could get away with murder!
Starring Chris Ryan (King Kong) as Monty, with Nancye Hayes (Brigadoon), Alinta Chidzey (Curtains) and Genevieve Kingsford (Brigadoon).
This brand new Broadway show was nominated for 10 Tony Awards and won 4, including the coveted Best Musical. The score includes songs A Warning to the Audience, I Don’t Understand the Poor, Poison in My Pocket, Better with a Man, Why Are All The D’Ysquiths Dying? and Looking Down The Barrel of a Gun!
