      Death Takes a Holiday, the Musical

      Based on the 1934 film, Death Takes a Holiday is a celebration of the limited time we spend on Earth. In Death Takes a Holiday, it's just after World War I and the loneliest of souls arrives at an Italian villa disguised as a handsome young Prince, and for the first time experiences the joys and heartbreaks of life. The show began as an Alberto Casella play from the 1920's that was made into a much-loved 1934 film starring Fredric March as Death, disguised as a debonair nobleman. The original film was remade in 1998 as Meet Joe Black, starring Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins. The musical is set in summer of 1921 at the family villa of Duke and Duchess Lamberti in Northern Italy. Originally produced Off Broadway at the Roundabout Theatre in 2011. Music and Lyrics by Maury Yeston, well known for his scores of Nine, Titanic, Phantom and Grand Hotel. Book co-written by Thomas Meehan, best known for writing the books for Annie, The Producers, Hairspray, Young Frankenstein and others. And Peter Stone, best known for films and musical books including 1776, Will Rogers Follies, Titanic and Curtains.
