A hit on Broadway as well as the silver screen -- including an adaptation in 1998 that was renamed Meet Joe Black and starred Brad Pitt -- Death Takes a Holiday tells the all-too-human tale of Death himself. Unable to understand why people are so afraid of him, Death decides to take human form for three days and spend some time amongst mortals. During his brief sojourn, he meets and falls in love with a woman -- and his true test comes when he must decide whether he can give up his own happiness so that his beloved may live. Charged with romance and excitement, Death Takes a Holiday remains an impactful rumination on love and death. See this thought-provoking Beechmont Players production at Anderson Center in Cincinnati.
