(Cincinnati, OH) ― The Tony® Award winner for Best Musical, A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER, will play the Aronoff Center in Cincinnati, January 3 – 8, 2017 in its First National Tour as a part of Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Cincinnati’s 16/17 Season presented by TriHealth.  Tickets are on sale now and available at the Aronoff Center Box Office downtown at 650 Walnut Street, online at CincinnatiArts.org or by phone at 513.621.ARTS.

GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession, by any means necessary. All the while, he’s got to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance… and be done in time for tea.

The most celebrated musical of the 2013-14 Broadway season, GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE received ten 2014 Tony® Award nominations, eventually winning four awards: Best Musical, Direction of a Musical, Book of a Musical, and Best Costume Design. In addition, it won the Best Musical prizes from the Drama League, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle, and received a 2015 Grammy® Award nomination for Best Musical Show Album.

A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER features a book and lyrics by Robert L. Freedman and music and lyrics by Steven Lutvak. Direction is by Darko Tresnjak, with choreography by Peggy Hickey. The design team includes Alexander Dodge (Scenic Design), Linda Cho (Costume Design), Philip S. Rosenberg (Lighting Design), Dan Moses Schreier (Sound Design), Aaron Rhyne (Projections Design), Brian Strumwasser (Make-Up Design), and Charles LaPointe (Wig Design). Orchestrations are by Jonathan Tunick and Vocal Arrangements are by Dianne Adams McDowell and Steven Lutvak. Paul Staroba serves as Music Supervisor.

Critics across the country are raving about GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE, hailed as “one of the best new Broadway musicals in years” by Time Out Chicago. The New York Times raved “GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE will lift the hearts of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form.” The San Francisco Chronicle applauded GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE as “one delight after another,” and the Hollywood Reporter enthused GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE “restores our faith in musical comedy!”
