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.
