EXCLUSIVE: Bryce Pinkham, Tony-nominated for the role he originated in the 2014 Best Musical A Gentleman’s Guide To Love And Murder, will return to the role of scheming heir Monty Navarro on July 28.
“I am positively rhapsodic over the prospect of returning to Highhurst Castle,” Pinkham told Deadline. “I am particularly overjoyed to be reunited with my hero and partner(s) in crime, Jefferson Mays. By the way, do the D’Ysquiths know I’m coming back? I bet they’ll be tickled to death.”
