Lutcher Theater
News Release
Monday, January 29, 2018

ORANGE, Texas - The Tony® Award winner for Best Musical, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, will play the Lutcher Theater in Orange on February 9, 2018 in its First National Tour.

Tickets range from $45 to $70 and are available now at or by calling the Lutcher Theater Box Office at 409.886.5535.

Gentleman’s Guide 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.


#1 - It won universal raves from critics, including The New York Times, which called it "HILARIOUS AND INSPIRED!" and The Hollywood Reporter, which said it "RESTORES OUR FAITH IN MUSICAL COMEDY!" A fine critic at NPR even said he'd "NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD AT A BROADWAY MUSICAL!” (Can you believe they laugh at NPR?!)

#2 - It features the same actor dying eight different times in eight hilariously different ways. (That’s more than most people die in a whole lifetime! Who knew that death could be hilarious?)

#3 - When your friends can't stop talking about the hottest new show in town, you'll know exactly what they mean! (You won’t have to Google it while they’re not looking.)

#4 – It’s guaranteed to give you something new to hum in the shower. The New York Times says, “It has one of the MOST ACCOMPLISHED SCORES to be heard in the past dozen years”

And just in case you’re still not convinced...

#5 - IT WON THE 2014 TONY AWARD® FOR BEST MUSICAL! (‘Nuff said.)

One of Broadway’s most celebrated musicals, Gentleman’s Guide received ten 2014 Tony® Award nominations, winning four awards: Best Musical, Direction of a Musical, Book of a Musical, and Best Costume Design. In addition, it won the Best Musical prizes from the Drama League, Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle, and received a 2015 Grammy® Award nomination for Best Musical Show Album.

Gentleman's Guide received critical acclaim on Broadway, where The New York Times raved “GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE will LIFT THE HEARTS of all those who’ve been pining for what sometimes seems A LOST ART FORM.” Time Magazine said “Just as I was about to give up on musicals, along comes A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER!”
