Short
Synopsis

A distant heir to a family fortune sets out to speed up the line of succession using a great deal of charm… and a dash of murder.

A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER is the knock-'em-dead uproarious hit and the most-nominated show of the 2014 season. With 10 TONY nominations and four wins including Best Musical, Book, Direction, and Costumes, it also earned seven Drama Desk Awards (including Best Musical), four Outer Critics Circle Awards (including Best Musical), and one Drama League Award (Best Musical).

When the low born Monty Navarro finds out he's 8th in line for an earldom in the lofty D'Ysquith family, he figures his chances of outliving his predecessors are slight and sets off down a far more ghoulish path. Can he knock off his unsuspecting relatives without being caught and become the second Earl of Highhurst?  And what of love?  Because murder isn't the only thing Monty's mind...

A GENTLEMAN'S GUIDE TO LOVE AND MURDER is a murderous romp filled with unforgettable music, non-stop laughs and a scene-stealing role for one actor playing all eight doomed heirs who meet their ends in the most creative and side-splitting ways.  A must produce for any theatre looking for a truly original and fresh new comedy that will delight audiences and leave them begging for more.

Short
Synopsis

Mark Twain's classic story comes to exuberant musical life in this Broadway adaptation of America's favourite book. THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER is the irresistible story of a fourteen-year-old boy growing up in the heartland of America.

This Broadway musical version of Mark Twain's immortal novel is set in 1840 in St. Petersburg, Missouri, a bustling town on the banks of the Mississippi River. In the course of the story, Tom matches wits with his stern Aunt Polly, falls in love with the beautiful, feisty Becky Thatcher, and goes on the adventure of his life with Becky and that irresistible renegade, Huckleberry Finn. Along the way we meet a terrifying villain named Injun Joe, Tom's bratty half-brother Sid, and all the other boys and girls in the village - providing one scene-stealing children's role after the other!

As this fun-filled musical unfolds, we share with Tom and his friends all of the rollicking and heart-stopping adventures that we find in Twain's masterpiece, whether it's Tom tricking his friends into white-washing the fence ("Smart Like That"), crossing swords with schoolmaster Lemuel Dobbins ("Hey, Tom Sawyer"), getting lost in McDougal's Cave ("Angels Lost"), or taking on the Reverend Sprague in church ("In The Bible").

Filled with foot-stomping, toe-tapping songs by Don Schiltz (The Gambler), and a warm, funny book by Ken Ludwig (Crazy For You and Lend Me A Tenor), THE ADVENTURES OF TOM SAWYER is a tale of thrilling escapes, comedy and inspiration for the whole family.
