Le Petit Theatre continues its 2018 – 2019 season with A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, the hit musical with extended performances through February 10, 2019. Join us for an enchanting evening of music, mirth, and… murder. Winner of the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder traces the meteoric rise and bloody brilliance of Monty Navarro, a charming, down-on-his luck clerk who learns he is eighth in line for the title of Earl of D’Ysquith, and a distant heir to the family fortune. There are only eight pesky relatives standing in his way….
The cast includes Kevin Murphy as Monty Navarro; Ricky Graham as all eight members of the D’Ysquith Family; Sarah Carlton as Sibella Halward; Rachel Looney as Phoebe D’Ysquith and Tracey Collins as Miss Shingle. Also featured: Marie Becnel, Matt Reed, Adam Segrave, Bryce Slocumb, and Maggie Windler.

Griffin (Lighting Designer), Christopher Ross-Ewart (Sound Design), and Michael Commendatore and Nick Hussong (Projection Designers).
