Music director Bradley Beahen leads the off-stage five-person orchestra in this fast and intricate score, flawlessly performed by the band and cast. Joey Miller's choreography is less big dance numbers and more crisp and precise movements that aid in the storytelling and create interesting tableaux.
A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder continues at the Old Log Theatre in Excelsior through February 15. Click here for info and tickets.
*Fun fact: GGLAM was also nominated for best score, but lost to Jason Robert Brown's exquisite The Bridges of Madison County, which will be receiving its regional premiere at Artistry in Bloomington early next year.
