Jeff Award-winner and audience favorite Matt Crowle portrays eight different characters in this 2014 Tony Award-winning BEST MUSICAL. It’s the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, an heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession by—you guess it—eliminating the eight pesky relatives who stand in his way. All the while, Monty has to juggle his mistress *she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance . . . and be done in time for tea. Here’s a show that will have you dying with laughter and that The New York Times calls “Among the most inspired and entertaining new musicals.”
Mr. Crowle’s performance is sponsored by Anne and Greg Taubeneck.
