Julian Ovenden is Death and also masquerades as Prince Nikolai on his weekend holiday at an Italian villa. He embraces life with childlike glee at times while never forgetting the power that he holds over the mortals around him. Of course, he falls in love. Ovenden's chemistry and vocalizations with Jill Paice (Grazia) are perfect.
It's a limited run at the Laura Pels Theater and is set to close on September 4th. (There is a discount code at broadwaybox.com.) My fingers and toes are crossed that there will be a cast recording AND that the show will move to another theater. Death Takes a Holiday is a lovely way to spend an evening...Sigh. If you have a romantic bone in your body, you will fall in love with it as I did.
