A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder

July, 22, 2016

This musical has won four Tony Awards, and I could have won an award for bursting into laughter as I enjoyed the comedy of errors and misdeeds it created through witty banter, punctuated facial expressions made to match the music, and lavish costumes. But I was far from the only audience member laughing…. There was a frequent hum in the air at the Fifth Avenue from continual chuckles, and the actors had to pause frequently for the buzz to die down before delivering their lines. This celebrated play, based on Roy Horniman’s cheeky 1907 novel, The Autobiography of a Criminal, and inspired by the movie, King of Heart and Coronets is a no-miss.
