The world-premiere musical, featuring the songs of Cole Porter, is expected to arrive on Broadway this fall.
Roman Holiday, the new Cole Porter musical directed by Marc Bruni, officially opens June 6 in San Francisco. The Broadway-bound production, starring Stephanie Styles and Drew Gehling, will play a limited engagement at the Golden Gate Theatre through June 18.
Roman Holiday, featuring a book by Paul Blake (who also co-produces alongside Mike Bosner) and Emmy winners Kathy Speer and Terry Grossman, incorporates several Porter tunes—including “Night and Day” and “Easy to Love”—to tell the story of a young European princess and the American reporter who inadvertently aids in her escape from a whirlwind European tour, resulting in an unforgettable 24 hours in Italy’s capital.
