Death Takes A Holiday

The musical version of Death Takes A Holiday finally lands its premiere in the United Kingdom this year as Thom Southerland helms the show in his inaugural year as Artistic Director of the Charing Cross Theatre. Originally a 1920s play and a 1934 film, which follows the character of Death as he finds himself in Italy in the time following the First World War, Death Takes A Holiday is a musical from Thomas Meehan, Maury Yeston and Peter Stone.

Death does not understand why everyone is so afraid of him and to investigate this he heads to Italy after the war and takes on human form, in the process learning about both life and death. Ultimately a Love Story, we witness how he falls for a young woman and events take a new turn.

This musical version was first seen in an off-Broadway location in 2011 and now makes its way to London, where it joins Titanic and Ragtime as a show directed by Thom Southerland as part of his tenure as Artistic Director. The acclaimed practitioner has also helmed the likes of State Fair at the Trafalgar Studios and Mack And Mabel at the Southwark Playhouse. He is highly experienced and has plenty to bring to the table when the show opens later in the year.

Death Takes A Holiday is at the Charing Cross Theatre from Saturday 3rd December 2016.
