Staff Reports | Digital Free Press

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is on stage at Arizona Broadway Theatre through June 1.

The four-time Tony Award-winning show is filled with unforgettable music, nonstop laughs and a scene-stealing role for an actor who plays all eight of the doomed heirs who meet their end in the most creative and side-splitting ways, according to a press release.

“It is hard to believe a musical about a serial killer could be so funny, but audiences are in for a real treat with this show,” said Kurtis Overby, artistic director at Arizona Broadway Theatre. “From the 10-piece live orchestra and the amazing LED wall to the immensely talented actors and the dozens of costume quick changes, this show is a feast for the ears and the eyes, not to mention the laugh-out-loud comedy elements.”

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder by Steven Lutvak with lyrics by Lutvak and Robert L. Freedman, and book by Mr. Freedman, centers around Monty Navarro, a penniless clerk turned conniving killer. After the death of his mother, Monty learns he is ninth in line to inherit the earldom of Highhurst. Unfortunately, the wealthy D’Ysquith banking family controls it and isn’t going to give it up without a fight.

After the imperious ruling Lord dismisses Monty’s claim of being a relative, the eight D’Ysquiths ahead of him start dying in natural, unnatural and hilarious ways. Meanwhile, Monty has his sights set on love as he tries to woo money-minded Sibella Hallward, that is until he finds himself drawn to young Phoebe D’Ysquith.

Arizona Broadway Theatre’s cast features Ryan Michael Crimmins, Katelyn Lauria, Kelsey Seaman, James Shultz, Katie Scarlett Swaney, Temperance Jones, Kimberly Abrams, Sophie Rapieiko, Erin Burtchaell, Henrique Sobrinho, Adam C. Hainsel, Tyler Gallaher and Zachary Mitchell.
