The first national tour of the Tony Award-winning musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder has recouped its entire capitalization after just over a year on the road.
The tour, which launched September 30, 2015, officially recouped the week of October 25, 2016, during its engagement in Hartford, CT. The musical had its world premiere premiere at Hartford Stage in 2012 prior to arriving on Broadway in the fall of 2013.
“Hartford audiences were instrumental in setting Gentleman’s Guide on its miraculous path. So getting to celebrate recoupment in this great city is not just exciting for all of us who have been with this show from early on—it’s absolutely poetic,” said producer Joey Parnes in a statement.
