Features: Adapted from Roy Horniman’s “Israel Rank: The Autobiography of a Criminal”, this musical comedy is a winner of 4 Tony Awards and first opened in 2013, in the Walter Kerr Theatre. It tells the story of Monty Navarro who realizes that seven heirs stand between him and dukedom. He, of course, takes the obvious route to reaching that much coveted spot – total and complete elimination. Also, there is the little problem of landing up in jail that Monty has to think about (and evade) while juggling his fiancé and mistress simultaneously.
Jefferson Mays would be playing all the eight characters. The book/lyrics are by Robert Freedman, direction by Darko Tresnjak and music/lyrics by Steven Lutvak, all of whom are much used to being awarded great accolades for their work. Jefferson Mays himself is a Tony Award winner.
Why We Go: The reviews of this musical comedy are enough reason to go and experience it at least once. NY TIME OUT magazine has called it the funniest and best musical of the year, and The Wall Street Journal, NY Times, NY Observer, The Hollywood Reporter, Entertainment Weekly, and USA Today have all reiterated the same. It was NY Times’ critics’ pick and was compared to Sweeny Todd’s amazing and bloodlust filled journey. It has been said in the reviews that this musical comedy has brought back a balance between witty phrases and musical journey to Broadway, and is sure to be one of the immortal performances that would find a permanent place in Broadway’s wall of fame.
• Awards – This musical comedy was nominated for 9 Tony Awards, out of which it eventually won 4, including that of Best Musical, Best Book, Best Direction and Best Costume Design. It also saw 11 nominations in the Drama Desk Awards out of which it won 7, including Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Book, Outstanding Lyrics, Outstanding Actor, Outstanding Director, Outstanding Featured Actress and Outstanding Projection Design. The Drama League Award was also won by this musical and Jefferson Mays, who plays 8 roles in the musical, also won the Outer Critics Circle Award.
• Great Comedy – The sense of humor and the timing of the comedy has been praised by Associated Press and USA Today. Jefferson Mays’ performance has been a particular high point for the musical, apart from the writing and music. It has also been called “daring” and “ingenuously absurd” by Variety magazine. The Hollywood Reporter has called it the restorer of faith for everyone among all musical comedies that have come out of Broadway.
• Treat For Witty Viewers – The sharp wit and dialogues have been praised by one and all, making this musical fit for even the non-musical lovers. Broadway is not everyone’s cup of tea but for people wanting to experience it once in their lives, especially on a visit to New York, this could make for a great and fun evening.
Inside Knowledge: For visitors of New York wanting to take back souvenirs, various goodies are offered. This includes a keychain, the program book, windowcard, a unisex show tee, a Keep Calm tee, a CD, and a ceramic Stein. All these Gentleman’s Guide goodies can be purchased from the official website. It has been running for 24 weeks (as on 9th November, 2014) and in the last week itself, the hilarious musical comedy has grossed more than $36,000,000 at the box office. Bryce Pinkham and Jefferson Mays’ caricatures were recently added to the wall at Sardi’s, NY.
Do's and Don'ts:
• Do Make Sure To Enjoy Rush Tickets – There will be some limited rush tickets available for patrons who fall in the age group of $42 and below. These are, of course, availability based tickets but they have to be purchase in-person and day-of at the box office. In order to get the tickets, patrons would have to submit a valid ID and for every performance, 2 rush tickets would be limited for patrons.
• Do Buy Affordable Seats Quickly – The standard seats cost anywhere from $42 to $152. The premium seats begin at $199 and go up to $250. Since the standard seats are quickly filled up, it is important to book them as soon as possible. Given the popularity of this Broadway musical comedy, seats are filling up even sooner than usual. So, to enjoy cheap and affordable seats, pre-booking is always recommended. It is best to use online and telecharge booking for quick seats.
• Do Keep The Blackout Dates In Mind – The special tickets and student tickets would not be available on the Blackout Dates which would be from 25th December 2014 to 4th January 2015.
• Don’t Forget To Buy Gentleman’s Guide Merchandise – Gentleman’s Guide merchandise is ideal for various occasions, and its availability is not unlimited either. So, for fans of the show, it is important to grab this merchandise as soon as possible.
• Don’t Bring Children Aged 4 or Below – The show is recommended for kids aged 10 and above. But it is still an adult comedy with witty and caustic humor, more suited for adults. Children under the age of 4 are not allowed in the theatre and should not be brought. They may not be admitted in.
• Don’t Miss the Student Tickets – Special student tickets are also offered which can be bought from the official site. They cost $49.25 for a single ticket and $95.75 for two tickets. However, these student tickets must be collected in person from the box office. A valid photo student ID must be presented or the tickets would not be released. Even for picking two tickets, just one photo ID is enough. These tickets are on the balcony.
