Death Takes A Holiday is the third Charing Cross Theatre musical directed by Artistic Director Thom Southerland following the critically acclaimed Titanic and Ragtime, which has just received an all-time record 14 Off West End Award nominations as well as WhatsOnStage Award nominations for Best Musical Revival and Best Off West End Producton.
A soaring story of the preciousness of life and the overwhelming power of love, the European première of Death Takes A Holiday will run from Monday 16th January to Saturday 4th March. Press night is Monday 23rd January at 7.30pm.
Death Takes A Holiday has a lush, romantic score by multi Tony Award-winner Maury Yeston (Titanic, Nine, Grand Hotel) and a book by multi Tony Award-winners Thomas Meehan and Peter Stone. It is based on the 1928 Italian play of the same name, which also inspired the movie, Meet Joe Black, starring Brad Pitt.
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.
Death Takes A Holiday was nominated for 11 Drama Desk Awards when it premièred Off Broadway in 2011.
