Steven Lutvak & Robert L. Freedman Winners of the Drama Desk Awards for Best Lyrics & Best Book for “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder”

And here’s my Tony Predictions Part three. Where I show you my interview with the super talented creators of “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder” Composer Steven Lutvak, who won Best Lyrics at the Drama Desk and Robert L. Freedman who won for Best Book. They co-wrote the lyrics. And for the Tonys, I predict they could win across all these categories, too!

However, there’s the closed show “Bridges of Madison County” which won Best Music.

The Tony voters differ from the Drama Deskers in that they like to give their awards to shows THAT ARE STILL RUNNING. Which “A Gentleman’s Guide…” still is and getting bigger and bigger at the Box-Office all the time.

Jonathan Tunick, a legendary Orchestrator, could also win for “Best Orchestrations” continuing the “Gentleman’s Guide…” sweep.

Bryce Pinkham, the Gentleman of ” A Gentleman’s Guide…”

The super-hot new leading man/matinee idol on Broadway this season is Bryce Pinkham, the titular gentleman of “A Gentleman Guide to Love and Murder”, which just won 7 Drama Desk Awards drops by “The Stephen Holt Show” at the Drama Desk Awards themselves. Bryce is nice. No really, he is not anything like the villainous characters he has played on Broadway in “Ghost” and now the kinder, gentler semi-villain, semi-hero of “A Gentleman’s Guide…” which has earned him a Tony nomination for Best Actor in a Musical. He talks about this and his background as a graduate of the Yale School of Drama.
