Further casting and creatives have been announced for Theatre Royal Bath’s forthcoming new musical Roman Holiday.
Previously announced was Michael Xavier (My Fair Lady, Sunset Boulevard), who is playing American journalist Joe in this musical adaptation of the classic Oscar-winning movie starring Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck.
