The 2014 Tony Award winner for Best Musical, “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder,” is coming to Tulsa this week, from January 23 – 28. Celebrity Attractions will put on the performance.
The musical revolves around Monty Navarro, who learns he’s eighth in line to the D’Ysquith family fortune. Navarro sets out to inherit the fortune, and those ahead of him start dying in mysterious ways. Meanwhile, he’s also dealing with his mistress and his fiancee.
“Israel Rank: Autobiography of a Criminal” by Roy Horniman, a 1907 novel, was the inspiration for the musical. Robert L. Freedman wrote the book and lyrics, while Steven Lutvak wrote the music and contributed to lyrics. Those involved in the creation of the play include several Tony Award nominees and winners who worked on “Anastasia,” “Into the Woods” and “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.”
“A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder” received critical acclaim on Broadway, running from 2013 – 2016. The “New York Times” said it “will lift the hearts of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form.” In 2014, the musical received 10 Tony Award nominations, winning Best Musical, direction of a Musical, Book of a Musical and best Costume Design. It also won a 2015 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.
Celebrity Attractions is a Tulsa-based company that has presented six Broadway seasons in a four-state region. The show will run from January 23 – 28.
