Pinkham took a leave of absence from the production last winter to star in the Broadway revival of Wendy Wasserstein's The Heidi Chronicles. He returns to Gent's Guide July 28.

"I am positively rhapsodic over the prospect of returning to Highhurst Castle," Pinkham said in a statement. "I am particularly overjoyed to be reunited with my hero and partner(s) in crime, Jefferson Mays. By the way, do the D'ysquith's know I'm coming back? I bet they'll be tickled to death."

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 Robert L. Freedman and Steven 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).
