Death Takes A Holiday

Death Takes A Holiday

at Charing Cross Theatre

Price from $ 60.00

Thom Sutherland directs the UK premiere of Death Takes a Holiday, music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and book by Peter Stone and Thomas Meehan, the European premiere of the follow-up to Titanic by its Tony Award-winning composers.

In Northern Italy, shortly after World War One, Death disguises himself as a handsome young prince to try to understand why life is so precious, and death so feared. But when he unexpectedly falls in love with a newly engaged young woman, this mysterious stranger discovers that love may, in fact, be stronger than death.

With a book by multi Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan and Peter Stone, based on the 1928 Italian play of the same name which went on to inspire the movie, Meet Joe Black, starring Brad Pitt, and a lush, romantic score by multi-Tony Award-winner Maury Yeston (Titanic, Nine), this is a soaring story of the preciousness of life and the overwhelming power of love.
Death Takes A Holiday was nominated for 11 Drama Desk Awards when it premiered Off-Broadway in 2011.
