From January 24 to February 8, the Little Theater of Alexandria will be presenting "A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder". The story is about a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to speed up the line of succession by using a great deal of charm … and a dash of murder. The show is based on the book and lyrics by Robert L. Freedman with music and lyrics by Steven Lutvak. According to the Alexandria Gazette, "Director Frank D. Shutts II said when he first saw this production on Broadway in 2014, he knew this musical was the perfect fit for LTA and its audience. “It's fun, Gilbert-and-Sullivanesque style, sophisticated wit, and who does it and how the plot is types of shows our audiences like. ‘A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder’ offer all in one nice package!” said Shutts, who is now in his 30th year of directing for LTA. He added: “This play is offered up for pure fun and enjoyment. I hope the audience appreciates its almost comedy of manners humor and story-telling: good people behaving badly." As per Alexandria Gazette, "LTA is presenting “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” from now through Feb. 8, 2020. Showtimes are Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 p.m.; Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are $29-$34. The venue is located at 600 Wolfe Street, Alexandria, VA. "
