This week would have been the run of our production of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. In another world, this hilarious show would have opened last Friday, May 29, to an audience that would have been able to laugh at the antics of Lord Montague "Monty" D'Ysquith Navarro as he recounts his memoirs. We do not live in that world, and our unusual circumstances means that we had to ask you, our patrons, our volunteers, and our talented production team to save their patronage and creative potential for a time yet.
Orpheus would like to thank the many months of planning and effort that Andrew Portolesi, Lisa Concessi Maclean, and Debbie Guilbeault, along with their many production heads had put into this show. Planning for our shows will often start a year or more before the curtain opens.
In these uncertain times, Orpheus will continue to prioritize the health of everyone on both sides of the fourth wall. We very much look forward to bringing you more musical theatre, and we will continue to keep you updated as health recommendations and city services influence our ability to return to our normal operations.
