Just after World War I, the loneliest of souls arrives at an Italian villa disguised as a handsome young Prince. For the first time, Death experiences the joys and heartbreaks of life.

DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY began as a 1929 play by Alberto Casella. In 1934, the play was adapted into a beloved film starring Fredric March as Death disguised as a debonair nobleman. In 1998, the film was remade as MEET JOE BLACK, starring Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins. The musical premiered off-Broadway on July 14, 2011 at the Laura Pels Theatre as a Roundabout Theatre Company production.

Timeless appeal... One lush, soaring number after another... a melody-rich score that draws on a wide range of influences, from the Baroque to the British poperetta craze of the 1980s. – The New York Times
