Jefferson Mays was on the Leonard Lopate Show recently to talk about playing not one, but eight, roles in the Broadway musical, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. He also told us what he's been reading and watching recently
Jefferson Mays discusses playing the eight characters in “A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder.” Monty Navarro has just received some great news from his late mother’s lifelong friend—he’s a long-lost member of a noble family and could become the next Earl of Highhurst. There are only eight minor issues, namely the other relatives who precede him in line for the title. Mays plays each of the eight heirs standing in the way of Monty’s fortune—a breathtaking, whiplash-inducing performance. “A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder” is playing at the Walter Kerr Theatre.
Playwright J. T. Rogers talks about Lincoln Center Theater’s critically acclaimed production of “Blood and Gifts.” He’s joined by stars Jefferson Mays and Jeremy Davidson. The play tells the story of the secret spy war behind the Soviet-Afghan War of the 1980s. It’s playing through Sunday, January 8, at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater.
