We've compiled the feature stories for the national tour of A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder that plays at ASU Gammage this coming Tuesday, March 15th, to Sunday, March 20th.

Kerry Lengel, of the Arizona Republic, spoke to the two stars of the tour, John Rapson and Kevin Massey -
"In the Tony Award-winning musical “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” the lion’s share of attention falls on the one actor who plays eight characters, all eccentric English aristocrats of the D’Ysquith clan. He’s an effete beekeeper one minute, then — after meeting an untimely demise — returns as an old-maid socialite. These rapid-fire costume transformations are called quick changes, but for John Rapson, co-star of the national tour of “Gentleman’s Guide” that’s visiting Tempe’s ASU Gammage, they are his only chance to relax...."  CLICK HERE to read the rest of Kerry's interview with the two stars of the tour

Tami Hoey of CBS 5 spoke to Nadine Hettel, the dresser for the tour, who has to make some very quick costume changes back stage...
"How long does it take you to get dressed in the morning? A couple of minutes? Well, one quick-change costume artist has been known to get an actor’s costume changed in just 17 seconds... or less.
Nadine Hettel is known as a “star dresser,” and next week she’ll be backstage at ASU's Gammage Auditorium in Tempe, helping actors in and out of their costumes for the production of “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder.” The Tony award-winning musical show is known for its lightning-quick costume changes. "It's challenging," Hettel tells us, laughing......" CLICK HERE to read the rest of Tami's interview with Nadine Hettel
