Directed by Eric Morris
A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder is the knock-'em-dead, uproarious hit and the most-nominated show of the 2014 Broadway season.
With 10 Tony nominations and 4 wins, including Best Musical, Book, Direction and Costumes, this Tony-Award Winning Musical makes its Minnesota Premiere at the Old Log.
Set in London in 1907, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder centers on Monty Navarro, a penniless clerk who is informed after the death of his mother that he is ninth in line to inherit the earldom of Highhurst, controlled by the wealthy D’Ysquith banking family. After the imperious ruling Lord dismisses Monty’s claim of being a relative, the eight D’Ysquiths ahead of young Mr. Navarro begin dying in natural and unnatural ways. (A single actor plays all the not-so-nice D'Ysquiths, adding to the merriment.)
Eric is going into his 4th year of collaborations with the Old Log Theatre. As an actor, Eric has portrayed Freddy Benson in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Robbie Hart in The Wedding Singer, and Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet. OLT directing credits have and will include Ghost the Musical, How I Became a Pirate, Lend Me a Tenor, Winnie-the-Pooh, and the upcoming Rosemary Clooney musical Tenderly.
