Product Description

Starring: Linda Balgord, Matt Cavenaugh, Mara Davi, Kevin Earley, Joy Hermalyn, Jay Jaski, Simon Jones, Rebecca Luker, Patricia Noonan, Jill Paice, Michael Siberry, Alexandra Socha, Don Stephenson, Max Von Essen and Julian Ovenden* (*This was Julian Ovenden's final performance. He performed in the first scene after which the show was stopped and an announcement was made that his understudy Kevin Earley (who would replace Ovenden from that night on would resume the role in a moment).

“Based on the beloved play, Death Takes a Holiday features an enchanting story adapted by Tony Award-winning book writers Peter Stone (1776) and Thomas Meehan (Annie, The Producers, Hairspray) and lush, romantic songs by the Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist Maury Yeston (Nine, Titanic).

This soaring new production about the power of love to change, inspire and sustain us is directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt). When the loneliest of souls arrives at an Italian villa disguised as a handsome young prince, he experiences the joys and heartbreaks of life for the first time.

But when he unexpectedly falls in love with a newly engaged young woman, the mysterious stranger discovers that love may in fact be stronger than death”.

Nicely filmed from the balcony with a nice mix of close-ups and full stage shots. No obstructions. Disc also includes cast/creative interviews, reviews and opening night footage.
