Getting away with murder can be so much fun…and there’s no better proof than this 2014 Tony Award winner for Best Musical. Gentleman’s Guide tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, who—after finding himself ninth in line for dukedom—decides that he has no option but to knock off each of the eight relatives ahead of him, all of whom are portrayed by the talented Jefferson Mays (I Am My Own Wife). All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?) and the constant threat of landing behind bars. Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance…and be done in time for tea.
