Thom Sutherland directs the UK premiere of Death Takes a Holiday, music and lyrics by Maury Yeston and book by Peter Stone and Thomas Meehan, the European premiere of the follow-up to Titanic by its Tony Award-winning composers.
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 which went on to inspire the movie, Meet Joe Black, starring Brad Pitt, 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.
Death Takes A Holiday was nominated for 11 Drama Desk Awards when it premiered Off Broadway in 2011.

Daring and unusual...Thom Southerland impresses again with an insinuating chamber musical The Stage

Interest in, but not up to West end standards
The plot is intriguing. The music is nice though not up to the quality of the creator's masterwork, Titanic. The book is ok, though it does not really keep up the intrigue set at the top of the show. The set is very good as is the lighting, likewise the costumes - so the show is easy on the eye. With the exception of the actor playing "Death" and Gay Soper, who were both excellent - as we're the supporting chorus, the remaining principals are either poorly directed or not really up to scratch, perhaps both, sadly this rendered the entire show second rate, with a "touring company" feel. The couple next to us left in the interval, and whereas I wanted to see the thing through, my wife said she would have happily joined them. I would give it credit for being an original musical and not a revival or jukebox show. See it if you want to broaden your exposure to original works, avoid it if you want to be fully entertained. Shame, because I had high hopes

Great news from the Charing Cross Theatre where my friends, the director Thom Southerland and producer Danielle Tarento are to helm a new season of musical theatre.
They kick off with a re-staging of their highly acclaimed production of TITANIC, originally seen at the Southwark Playhouse in 2013, revived with great success in Canada and long tipped for a central London run.Read more
