BWW Interview: Maury Yeston Talks DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Ahead of London OpeningBWW Interview: Maury Yeston Talks DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY Ahead of London Opening
by Liz Cearns - Sep 30, 2016

Maury Yeston, the composer and lyricist best-known for Nine and Titanic, visited the West End a few months before the West End opening of his new musical, Death Takes a Holiday.
