The Tony Award-winning Best Musical, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, played its final performance on Broadway Jan. 17 at 6:30 PM at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
The production played 30 previews and 905 regular performances at the Kerr, and its Tony Award-winning star, Jefferson Mays, died more than 6,000 deaths as various members of the ill-fated D’Ysquith family.
In April 2015, Gentleman’s Guide announced the recoupment of its entire Broadway production capitalization. The hit musical received ten 2014 Tony Award nominations, winning four awards: Best Musical, Direction of a Musical, Book of a Musical, and Best Costume Design.

"The success of this show – which we’ve often said is nothing short of a miracle – is a testament to the artists who have created it and the audiences who have embraced it,” said producer Joey Parnes in an earlier statement. "This experience has been such a constant joy and, while we wish it could run on Broadway forever, we are excited about bringing the show to audiences from coast-to-coast with our tour."
The musical is currently on tour throughout North America.
