Best Musical

A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder was the clear pick for Best Musical from readers. The musical by writing/composing team Robert L. Freedman and Steven Lutvak, which was inspired by the book "Kind Hearts and Coronets," follows the unlikely hero Monty Navarro, who upon learning he is a distant relative of a wealthy family, systematically sets about murdering the eight relatives who stand between him and the family fortune. A Gentleman's Guide won the Tony for Best Musical June 8. Read the interview with the writers of Gent's Guide here
