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 - Jan 23, 2017

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. Based on a film (which was based on a play) this story tells of how Death changed his perspective. He used to not quite understand why everyone he came to collect was quite so aggrieved to die, until he met a particular woman who allowed him to realise quite what makes life worth clinging to.

BWW Review: William Finn and James Lapine Offer A Revised Look At FALSETTOSBWW Review: William Finn and James Lapine Offer A Revised Look At FALSETTOS
by Michael Dale - Oct 28, 2016
