A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder Critics' Reviews

"Daring, naughty and ingeniously absurd! This witty and adorably wicked new musical stars the endlessly inventive Jefferson Mays in multiple roles. Bryce Pinkham is terrific and almost indecently charming! Beautifully sung by the lovely Lauren Worsham and sexy-as-hell Lisa O'Hare.”"

Review by Marilyn Stasio from Variety

"Side-splitting! 'Gentleman's Guide' kills it with comedy! Jefferson Mays' comedic gifts are on glorious display in this delightful new musical romp. He seems to have as grand a time as you will watching him."

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

"Staged with ingenious wit by Darko Tresnjak, this thoroughly delightful and uproarious new musical is quite simply, a bloody good time!”"

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

"“Inspired and hilarious. Bloodlust hasn’t sung so sweetly, or provided so much theatrical fun, since Sweeney Todd first wielded his razor with gusto many a long year ago. 'A Gentleman's Guide' will lift the hearts of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems a lost art form: musicals that match streams of memorable melody with fizzily witty turns of phrase. It has one of the most accomplished scores to be heard in the past dozen years, beautifully sung by a rich-voiced cast. Jefferson Mays' brilliant performance deserves to be immortalized in Broadway lore.”"

Review by Charles Isherwood from New York Times
