Get £20 tickets to Death Takes A Holiday.
In Northern Italy, shortly after World War One, Death disguises himself as a handsome young prince to try to understand why life is so precious and death so feared. But when he unexpectedly falls in love with a newly engaged young woman, this mysterious stranger discovers that love may in fact be stronger than death.
With a book by multi-Tony Award winners Thomas Meehan and Peter Stone, based on the 1928 Italian play of the same name, and a lush, romantic score by multi -Tony Award winner Maury Yeston (Titanic, Nine), this is a soaring story of the preciousness of life and the overwhelming power of love.
