Jefferson Mays Celebrates His 1,000th Death in ‘A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder’

Tony winner Jefferson Mays has won rave reviews for his role in A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, portraying eight very diverse members of the D’Ysquith family. He also dies (at times spectacularly) eight times a show. Those 64 deaths a week add up, and the actor celebrated his 1,000th death this week — said to be faster than any other lead actor on Broadway. To celebrate the milestone, co-star Bryce Pinkham presented Mays with a “death certificate” in a cheeky ceremony outside the Walter Kerr Theatre. Watch the video below!
