Men should think twice

before making widowhood women’s only path to power.

How low would you go to better your circumstances?  What if bumping off a few inconvenient relatives could secure your fortune?

In Broadway’s new musical comedy, the Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, Bryce Pinkham plays the part of penniless Monty Navarro, who is desperate to keep his socially ambitious love from being snagged by a more well-heeled suitor. He sings and frolics on stage while hacking his way up the family tree to be the next Earl of Highhurst.

This musical score delivers chuckles rich with witty lines and turns of phrase.  I was completely riveted by the virtuoso, Jefferson Mays, who plays the parts of all the eight D’Ysquith family members Monty sets out to eliminate.

    After reading yours and other reviews this show sounds like a lot of fun (not so much for Mr. Fox) and a Valentines treat, Sharky! For me, Broadway is too far to travel but Las Vegas is not! A beautiful Goddess will accompany me as we consider each other as Valentine’s. She will have to settle for a third row seat (no umbrella required) at the Eagles concert the night after Valentines. She was sad that she had missed them in LA and I hate to see a sad faced Goddess. A happy Goddess is much more powerful. 😉
