A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder is the knock-’em-dead, uproarious hit and the most nominated show of the 2014 season.

When the low-born Monty Navarro finds out that he’s eighth 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 ninth Earl of Highhurst? And what of love? Because murder isn’t the only thing on Monty’s mind…

Choose your lunch from these options; braised boneless short ribs, seared pork chop, dill roasted tilapia, or vegetarian pasta dish. Cost is $65.00 (includes transportation, lunch, tax, gratuity, and theater ticket).
