A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder Opening This Week!

Mason Street Warehouse at the Saugatuck Center for the Arts presents the third production in its summer season, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, winner of 4 Tony Awards including Best Musical.

A wickedly funny mashup of Downton Abbey meets Mel Brooks,Gentleman’s Guide tells the hilarious tale of Monty Navarro, the dashing heir to the D’Ysquith family fortune, who sets out to jump the line of succession by—you guessed it—eliminating the eight pesky relatives who stand in his way.

“Gentleman’s Guide has a wonderfully clever storyline, over-the-top singing, and visually stunning period costumes and sets. We’re thrilled that our production will be the West Michigan regional premiere for this show!” said Mason Street Warehouse Artistic Director Kurt Stamm.

Mason Street’s production features 5 “alumni” seen in previous productions (including Elliott Litherland as Monty Navarro, Gina Milo as Sibella Hallward, Harry Bouvy as the D ‘Ysquith family along with Ellie Frances and Jeff Meyer) along with newcomers Katie Fay Francis, Jerome Doerger, Dan Krackhardt, Colleen McLaughlin and Abby C. Smith.

A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder runs through Sunday, September 1. Matinee and evening performances are available.

Pour yourself a drink and enjoy this murderous romp filled with unforgettable music, larger than life characters, and non-stop laughs.
