Bryce Pinkham, Jefferson Mays and the Cast and Creatives of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder Meet the Press
A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder stars Bryce Pinkham as the black sheep of the D'Ysquith family who decides to eliminate the eight heirs standing in the way to his dukedom. Jefferson Mays plays all eight of the D'Ysquith heirs. Here, Pinkham and Mays are joined by castmates Lauren Worsham and Lisa O'Hare, director Darko Tresnjak and songwriters Steven Lutvak (music and lyrics) and Robert L. Freeman (lyrics) to chat with Playbill about the five-year gestation of the show — built around the talents of Mays — and the musical and theatrical influences that were incorporated. Performances begin Oct. 22 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. See a musical preview of the show.
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
