After his mother’s funeral, middle-class Englishman Monty Navarro learns an incredible secret - he is the “son of the daughter of the grandson of nephew of the second Earl of Highhurst”, making him an aristocrat - if he can just find a way to prevent the eight earls preceding him from inheriting the earldom first. An Edwardian style, operatic farce, A Gentleman’s won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Musical.
