At that time the production will have played 30 previews and 905 regular performances at the Walter Kerr Theatre, and its Tony Award-winning star, Jefferson Mays, will have died more than 6,000 deaths as various members of the ill-fated D’Ysquith family.

In April, Gentleman’s Guide announced the recoupment of its entire Broadway production capitalization. The hit musical received ten 2014 Tony Award nominations, winning four awards: Best Musical, Direction of a Musical, Book of a Musical, and Best Costume Design.

Gentleman’s Guide, according to press notes, "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 Tony-winning musical features a book by Robert L. Freedman, music by Steven Lutvak, and lyrics by Freedman and Lutvak. Darko Tresnjak directs, and Peggy Hickey choreographs.

Tickets, priced $42-$147, are on sale via telecharge.com or by calling (212) 239-6200. Tickets are also available for purchase in person at the Walter Kerr Box Office (219 W. 48th Street).
