The UK premiere of film to stage romantic comedy

Roman Holiday, the multi Academy Award winning movie comedy, is brought to life on stage in a new musical adaptation.

The show features the unforgettable songs of Cole Porter including Easy To Love, You Do Something To Me, In The Still Of The Night, Just One Of Those Things and Night and Day, and the much-loved film has been adapted by Kirsten Guenther and Paul Blake, who co-wrote the stage version of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas.

Winning multiple Academy Awards when first released 70 years ago, Roman Holiday follows a youthful princess and an American journalist on a frenetic 24-hour adventure through the delights of the Italian capital.

The show will star Michael Xavier (My Fair Lady, Sunset Boulevard) as American journalist Joe, and Rebecca Collingwood (Arms and the Man, While The Sun Shines) as the young princess, Ann.

Roman Holiday premieres at the Theatre Royal Bath this summer 2023. There is not currently any news on a West End transfer, but check back for details or sign-up for our email alerts.
