Last night my sister and I went into the city to see A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder at the Walter Kerr Theatre. I had been wanting to see it for some time, especially after watching their performance at the Tony Awards. Opportunity knocked for lower priced tickets and I jumped at it.
The show was so wonderful; complete with fantastic humor, vibrant characters, and great songs. I met some of the cast after show at the stage door but we had to leave to catch our train.
The thing about going to see Broadway shows is that I get to completely turn off. Except during intermission, but if it’s a good play by the time intermission rolls around I am bouncing in my seat waiting for Act II. How often do we get to power down and let our mind focus on one thing? Not very often. Live theater is so exhilarating. There is a humble thrill to it, not knowing how the performance will, it the actors will mess up, or if you will feel a reaction.
A Gentleman’s Guide was pleasant from the very beginning to the end. There was so much laughter. I would definitely recommend seeing it, and may even find myself seeing it again.
