MARK INSCOE STEPS INTO DEATH TAKES A HOLIDAY
Maxwell Caulfield has withdrawn from the European premiere of the musical Death Takes a Holiday due to unforeseen circumstances and the role of Duke Vittorio Lamberti will now be played by our very own Mark Inscoe.
Zoë Doano and Chris Peluso also head the cast of the much-anticipated staging of Maury Yeston’s musical, which is based on the Italian play ‘La Morte In Vacanza’ by Alberto Casella.
The romantic tale was previously made into a 1934 film starring Frederic March and was also the inspiration for the 1998 Brad Pitt movie Meet Joe Black. The musical Death Takes a Holiday made its debut Off-Broadway in 2011.
Mark Inscoe played Hugh Dorsey in Thom Southerland’s acclaimed production of Parade at Southwark Playhouse. His many musical theatre credits include William Desmond Taylor in Mack & Mabel (Chichester), Emile de Becque in South Pacific and Professor Higgins in My Fair Lady (Kilworth House), Captain Von Trapp in The Sound Of Music (Leicester Curve), Bernadette in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (Palace) and Tabarro in La Cage Aux Folles (Menier Chocolate Factory).
The third production in Thom Southerland’s first season as artistic director, following on from the critically acclaimed Titanic and Ragtime, Death Takes a Holiday will run from 16 January until 4 March 2017 at the Charing Cross Theatre with a press night on 23 January.
