A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is coming to Mobile!
By special arrangement with Music Theatre International, Chickasaw Civic Theatre has obtained rights to present this knock-’em-dead, uproarious musical comedy in August 2019. This is a real treat. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder swept the award circuit in New York, winning Best Musical honors from the Tony Awards, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle and Drama League plus an array of other honors. We don’t usually announce a show this far in advance, but we’re so excited about this one that we wanted to share the good news. Watch for more details in the coming months.
Set in London in 1907, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder centers on Monty Navarro, a penniless clerk who is informed after the death of his mother that he is ninth in line to inherit the earldom of Highhurst, controlled by the wealthy D’Ysquith banking family. After the imperious ruling Lord dismisses Monty’s claim of being a relative, the eight D’Ysquiths ahead of young Mr. Navarro begin dying in natural and unnatural ways. Meanwhile, Monty is trying to woo money-minded Sibella Hallward —until he finds himself drawn to young Phoebe D’Ysquith. How will all these convoluted storylines come together?\
