My sister and I saw a total of 3 plays during our visit to NYC (the other two we saw are Tony award winning plays)...A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder was our VERY favorite show! What a hilarious, clever, engaging and perfectly acted performance! The story was so fun! The actors were amazing...their singing, SO amazing...they obviously enjoy working together, as they played off of each others humor and made very funny moments even more entertaining. The orchestra was WONDERFUL. The set was simple and beautiful and surprising as it sprang to life during the performance... I can't say enough about it... The theater was beautiful and our seats, mezzanine right, were fabulous...I don't think there was a bad seat in the house. If there were any glitches during this first run preview on October 22nd, we certainly didn't detect them...the entire crew made the production an utter delight and we couldn't have had a more enjoyable night!! GO SEE THIS FABULOUS SHOW!!!!

I'm sorry I couldn't stay in New York longer and see this play a second time. It was the funniest play I have ever seen. And it was even better than the movie Kind Heart and Coronets. Hats off to the D'Ysquiths. I hope you're still there when I travel to New York again.

This has to be one of the most memorable shows I have seen on Broadway. The comedy is never ending and the music is wonderful. The play is over two hours long and you wish it would continue even after the curtain has gone down. A pure delight!

Refreshing dose of the real thing........original music, talented cast, and laugh out loud humor. I would see it again and again.

Was just wandering the theater district with my wife and we decided this sounded like fun, so we grabbed two tickets and did not stop laughing and having fun for 2 hours. Entertaining and talented cast seemed to be having as much fun as the audience. Reminded me of a great carol burnet skit, set to music, that went on for two hours that felt like 10 minutes. Go.

A great night of inventive, entertaining and not to miss theater!

For my first visit to NYC for fourteen years and my nephew's first visit ever, I wanted a Brodway show with zing and panache. Kind Hearts and Coronets has long been one of my favourite films so A Gentleman's Guide sounded ideal. It exceeded my already high expectations and we both - my nephew is not really a theatregoer - hugely enjoyed the show. The theatre is a gem (even if the seating is somewhat cramped), the staff delightful and the performers - particularly Jefferson Mays - outstanding. I wept with laughter and consider myself fortunate to have come across this exceptionally entertaining show. I just hope that it transfers - with cast intact - to London where, if there's any justice, it would run forever.
