Best musical: ‘A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder’

Many a musical today exceeds past versions of the genre in terms of loudness or glitz, but rarely in substance. The Tony-winning “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” by Robert L. Freedman and Steven Lutvak, is one of the few, matching a droll yarn about an heir-apparent committing serial relative-cide to an exceedingly clever, evocative score. The deliciously designed touring production that visited the Hippodrome Theatre during Christmas week proved a most welcome gift, boasting a spot-on cast headed by Kevin Massey and John Rapson.
