For one weekend in Summer, 1922, Death decides to take a vacation, choosing a lovely villa in Italy and multiple Tony Award winners Maury Yeston, Peter Stone, and Thomas Meehan to tell his story in gorgeous, mesmerizing harmonies and clever, comedic book. In staging Death Takes a Holiday, The Tabard Theatre Company of San Jose brings to life the Grim Reaper himself to lead a celebration of living, loving, and enjoying to the hilt the simple joys possible in any given day on earth.
