Getting away with murder can be so much fun… and there’s no better proof than this new comedy of manners (well, bad manners) set in England’s elegant Edwardian era. When Monty Navarro (played by Bryce Pinkham), a disinherited relative of the rich and powerful D’Ysquith clan, learns he’s ninth in line to inherit the earldom, he sets out to secure his future by, er, process of elimination. Monty does what any ambitious gentleman would do: he eliminates them one by one. Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way into Highhurst Castle… and be done in time for tea. Each of the eight heirs perilously standing in the way of Monty’s fortune is played by past Tony Award®-winner Jefferson Mays in one of the most tireless, whiplash-inducing performances ever attempted on the American stage.


Based on the 1907 novel Israel Rank: The Autobiography of a Criminal by Roy Horniman, A Gentleman’s Guide… comes to Broadway after tryouts at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego and Connecticut’s Hartford Stage Company.


  • The novel on which the musical is based is also the source material for the classic British screen comedy Kind Hearts and Coronets starring Alec Guiness.
  • Jefferson Mays won a Tony Award for another show in which he played multiple roles: I Am My Own Wife by Doug Wright.
