Happy New Year! This is a duet to get us wanting "More & More" in 2017. #StageFaves Chris Peluso and Zoe Doano give us a taste of what's to come with the European premiere of DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY, with this first video and song release from the show, which opens this month at Charing Cross Theatre, directed by Thom Southerland...

DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY is a soaring story of the preciousness of life and the overwhelming power of love, with a socre by Maury Yeston (whose Titanic provided a hit for director Thom Southerland and producer Danielle Tarento at Charing Cross in 2016) and a book by Thomas Meehan and Peter Stone. 

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.

DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY is based on the 1928 Italian play of the same name, which also inspired the movie, Meet Joe Black, starring Brad Pitt. In addition to Chris Peluso and Zoe Doano, this new production stars Maxwell Caulfield in a cast of #StageFaves.
