“Hillarious and very Clever”

A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder
Attraction details
Reviewed 22 July 2014

A wonderful show and a must see in my opinion. We laughed and laughed. Jefferson Mays was fantastic and we could not believe how he was able to make so many quick costume changes. Very well done. If you have time for only one show and are looking for comedy, this is your best bet!

Points to know: not much legroom so don't expect to stretch out. There is not a large distance from the stage to the back of the house. This is good because all seats are close to the stage, but this also means that the back rows of the Mezz and Balcony cannot see the front of the stage very well. Set is designed so that most action occurs downstage (back of stage). Lastly, there is only one restroom per gender. Women on the left (as you are facing stage) and Men on the right. Get up fast as soon as act 1 ends to get your place in line during intermission.

Lots of action with very few actors. It's an old-fashioned type of play where few actors play multiple roles. The actors are really talented and the show is fast-paced with fun music.

I saw this show at the Hartford Stage before coming to Broadway and told eveyone this would be worth paying full price for when it came to NYC. So far it has worked out very well and would recommend it to anyone.

This show deserves all the awards and kudos it gets, for being creative, well written and tremendously entertaining. We laughed and laughed, and when we weren't laughing, we were on the edge of our seats waiting for the next denouement in the absurd but wonderful and witty plot. Highly recommended!

This was a throw back to Victorian England. Very reminiscent of an operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan. Great story, witty and charming. The music walked a tightrope from staying in the english parlour song tradition to typical broadway fare.
The acting was superb, with kudos to Jefferson Mayes who played 8 roles.
It was over acted, over the top but that is what a show like this drastically needs. A Breath of fresh air for broadway.
