View Comments The dastardly cast assembles! John Rapson and Kevin Massey will headline the national tour of the Tony-winning musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder. Following previews in Schenectady in September, the tour will begin performances in Chicago and go on to play numerous cities across the U.S. including Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Salt Lake City, Tempe, Houston and Seattle.Rapson takes on the role of the colorful assembly of D’Ysquith heirs (all eight of them), while Massey will play Monty Navarro, the charmingly devilish young man out for their blood. Joining them will be Kristen Beth Williams as Sibella Hallward, Adrienne Eller as Phoebe D’Ysquith and Mary VanArsdel as Miss Shingle.Rapson heads to the tour after making his Broadway debut in Les Miserables. Massey appeared in the Great White Way company of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder, where he understudied the role of Monty. He’s also appeared in Memphis, Tarzan and Big River. Williams’ Broadway credits include Pippin, Nice Work If You Can Get It and Anything Goes. A recent grad of NYU Tisch, Eller previously appeared regionally in The Little Mermaid and Hairspray. VanArsdel previously appeared in the national tour of Mary Poppins.Rounding out the cast are Christopher Behmke, Sarah Ellis, Matt Leisy, Megan Loomis, Dani Marcus, Lesley McKinnell, Kristen Mengelkoch, David Scott Purdy, Chuck Ragsdale and Ben Rosenberry.A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession, by any means necessary. All the while, he’s got to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars. Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance…and be done in time for tea.The musical opened at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre on November 17, 2013, and went on to become the most nominated and honored production of the 2013-14 Broadway season. A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder is the winner of four 2014 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Direction of a Musical (Darko Tresnjak), Book of a Musical (Robert L. Freedman) and Costume Design of a Musical (Linda Cho).

Volume XXVIII Number 1 Page 1 Home composting is an excellent way to recycle many organic materials commonly found around the home. By composting, we convert what’s often called waste into a valuable, useful product.With a little time and effort, thousands of conservation-minded people are making compost from coffee grounds, fruit and vegetable trimmings, leaves, grass clippings and brush trimmings.They can then apply this compost to the landscape or garden. This improves the soil’s structure, enhances its fertility and provides nutrients that help plants grow better and produce more.So many benefitsHome composting is a win-win proposition for homeowners, landscape and garden plants and the environment.The amount of compost a vegetable garden needs depends mainly on the soil type and how you garden. But usually, it’s best to add 20 to 30 pounds of compost per 100 square feet of garden area each year.These amounts don’t cause a problem for people with small gardens. However, many gardeners with larger gardens find they can’t produce enough compost from their kitchen and yard waste.Need more?If you’re not making enough compost, what can you do?First, keep on composting. And keep on applying the compost to your garden, even if you can’t apply the full recommended rate. When it comes to compost in the garden, a good rule-of-thumb is that some is much better than none.NeighborsIf your neighbors aren’t composting, they may be happy to donate their kitchen and yard waste to your composting project. With that extra organic matter, you might be able to double or triple the amount of compost you can make. This may be all the compost you need.If you still don’t have enough, it’s probably time to consider supplementing your homemade compost with some made by someone else.Other resourcesOne possible source is a local municipality. Many cities and counties now compost organic materials collected locally and make the compost available at little or no cost to local citizens.Since they don’t usually deliver the compost, you’ll need a pickup truck or trailer to transport it. You can find out whether local municipal compost is available by contacting the county or city government or your University of Georgia Extension Service county office.Another possible source is a commercial composter. And there may be one near you. With the proper training and equipment, a professional composter can provide excellent compost at a reasonable price.As an added benefit, some of them will deliver compost to you. If you’re interested in getting commercial compost and don’t know a local source, your Georgia Extension Service county office may be able to help.(Darbie Granberry is an extension horticulturist with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.)
