Happy New Year! As we sweep out the old to usher in the new, why not start the year off with a “BANG” and get away with murder? Or, said another way, enjoy a fabulous date night with dinner and the 2014 Tony Award winner for Best Musical – A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder – showing now through January 8th at the Aronoff Center for the Arts.
Broadway in Cincinnati has done it again, offering up a comedy musical so delicious and funny, your cheeks will literally hurt on the way home from laughing so hard. Coming direct from New York for a limited engagement, the Gentleman’s Guide tells the hilarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession, by any means necessary – while juggling his mistress and fiancée. The story grabs you from the very beginning and entertains throughout. The witty dialogue, quirky characters, clever sets, and pure charm of Monty (played by Kevin Massey,) will be enough to convince you that this show is the ultimate guide to a great evening out.
For those of you seeking a time-out from the kids after a long winters’ break, or just looking for a change of pace from heading back to work in dreary weather, make plans for dinner and a show this week with A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder. It will light up your new year with its charm and leave you literally dying with laughter!
