Happy closing to the 1st National Tour of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder! After 501 performances and 4,509 onstage deaths, the tour died of natural causes in Costa Mesa, California yesterday (March 12th). Twenty one actors were a part of this company during its one and a half year life.

Next up, a community theatre production opens up in Spain, and in the fall, a production in Stockholm, Sweden.
