The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) It won a best new musical Tony Award and played more than 570 performances, yet one thing has eluded the Broadway show "A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder" until now profitability.

Producer Joey Parnes said Monday that his romp of a musical has finally recouped its entire $7.5 million capitalization. In an indication of how hard it is to make a profit, the show opened in November 2013 and has earned more than $51 million.

Though it had a slow start, the musical puffed along. It features a book by Robert L. Freedman, music by Steven Lutvak, and wry lyrics by Freedman and Lutvak.

It beat out "Aladdin," ''After Midnight" and "Beautiful The Carole King Musical" for best new musical Tony last year.
