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.
