A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder

  • Eisenhower Auditorium University Park, PA 16801 (map)

AD CANCELLED!!! Audio description will not be available for this show, due to a lack of request. The Center for the Performing Arts at PSU presents the musical comedy "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder" at Eisenhower Auditorium on October 19, 2017.

"Getting away with murder can be so much fun. And there’s no better proof than the knock-’em-dead hit show that’s earned unanimous raves and won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical—A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER.

Coming direct from New York City, where a most gentlemanly NPR critic says he’s “never laughed so hard at a Broadway musical,” GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by—you guessed it—eliminating the eight pesky relatives (all played by one fearless man) who stand in his way.

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."

The Hollywood Reporter raves, “GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE restores our faith in musical comedy.” The New York Times cheers, “It will lift the hearts of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form.”

The book and lyrics are by Robert L. Freedman, and the music and lyrics by Steven Lutvak. It is based on the 1907 novel Israel Rank: The Autobiography of a Criminal by Roy Horiman. The Broadway production won four Tony Awards in 2014, including Best Musical.
