If you can’t wait for Season 4 of Downtown Abbey to air in early January, head to Broadway for laughs aplenty. We think one of the funniest hits on the Great White Way is the cheeky music hall comedy set in Edwardian England, “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.” Starring the Tony award-winning Jefferson Mays in eight (!) different roles, this new musical lampoons British aristocracy in a style that’s alternately goofy and wonderfully witty. Critics have been raving, and tickets, well, you should try to buy tickets well in advance!
Address: Walter Kerr Theatre, 219 W 48th St
