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.

Please read my full Talkin' Broadway review, and then head to San Jose to see this fun, unique chamber musical:

  1. It would be among good corporate holiday party ideas to organize office parties away from the office. People associate the office space with monotonous daily grind. Go to a miniature golf course. Go to a park. Depending on your office building, you may even throw the party on the roof!
